Danny DeVito, Theresa Rebeck, Kenny Leon, More Set for Roundabout’s 2023-2024 Season
The fall Broadway calendar is starting to take shape. Roundabout Theatre Company has announced several productions for its 2023-2024 season, including 4 world premieres and a revival of a Tony-nominated play.
Several stars are already attached to projects, including Emmy winner Danny DeVito and his daughter, Lucy, in Theresa Rebeck’s comedy I Need That, about a man who simply can’t let things go. Co-starring Ray Anthony Thomas and directed by Moritz von Stuelpnagel, the new play begins in October at the American Airlines Theatre.
The spring 2024 Broadway production will be Home by Samm-Art Williams, directed by Tony winner Kenny Leon. Originally staged by the Negro Ensemble Company in 1979, and featured in the first year of Roundabout’s Refocus Project, the play is a coming-of-age story that spotlights the endless struggle of Americans searching for a place to belong.
Off-Broadway, The Refuge Plays by Nathan Alan Davis, will begin performances in September 2023 at the Laura Pels Theatre at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. Newly appointed New York Theatre Workshop Artistic Director Patricia McGregor will helm the production. An intergenerational saga that follows a single Black family over 70 years, the piece reimagines what a family play can be.
At the Black Box Theatre, Tiffany Nichole Greene will direct the Roundabout Underground world premiere of Covenant by York Walker, which begins in October. The play follows a struggling guitarist who returns to his small Georgia town a blues star, only for rumors to start swirling that he may have made a deal with the devil to attain his musical genius.
Next year, Rachel Bonds’ teenage drama Jonah will play at the Laura Pels, directed by Danya Taymor. It follows Ana, a boarding school student obsessed with falling in love. When she meets Jonah, it seems like everything she’s ever wanted is finally falling into place—until his true nature is revealed.
More casting, production calendars, and one additional Broadway production will be announced at a later date. For more information, visit RoundaboutTheatre.org.
