Roundabout Theatre Company Announces Plan for 2021-22 Season

Roundabout Theatre Company has just announced plans to resume production in Fall 2021. Coming up is Jeanine Tesori and Tony Kushner’s Caroline, or Change starring Sharon D Clarke, directed by Michael Longhurst, and choreographed by Ann Yee at Studio 54. Additionally, Alice Childress’s Trouble in Mind, directed by Charles Randolph-Wright, will debut at the American Airlines Theatre.

Roundabout Artistic Director/CEO Todd Haimes said, “While we are disappointed to put the shows off again, we’re busy filling the expanded gap in time by providing arts education for NYC students and teachers, and increasing our efforts to find opportunities for artists through our myriad off-stage programs. Once again I’d like to thank all our artists whose work was side-lined in March 2020 for their patience and understanding.”

Coming to Broadway in Spring 2022 will be 1776, directed by Jeffrey L. Page and Diane Paulus.

Off-Broadway, Roundabout will present Mansa Ra’s (formerly Jiréh Breon Holder) …what the end will be, directed by Margot Bordelon at the Laura Pels Theatre and Dave Harris’s Exception to the Rule, directed by Miranda Haymon.

Previously announced productions including Noah Haidle’s Birthday Candles starring Debra Messing, directed by Vivienne Benesch; Anna Ziegler’s The Wanderers, directed by Barry Edelstein; and Sanaz Toossi’s English, directed by Knud Adams will proceed at a future date to be determined.
