Roundabout Theatre Has Announced Their 2024-2025 Season
Roundabout Theatre Company has announced its 2024-2025 season on Broadway and Off-Broadway, including initial casting. Under the leadership of Interim Artistic Director Scott Ellis, Roundabout’s new season marks the first in its newly renamed home on Broadway, the Todd Haimes Theatre (formerly the American Airlines Theatre).
“In planning the season—my first as Interim Artistic Director—it was important to me to remain steadfast to Roundabout’s mission, and to Todd’s vision for this extraordinary company. I believe this line-up is one that he would have been proud of, as we bring together a group of exceptional artists to stage these works—both classic and new. I am thrilled the season will close with our jazz-infused, New Orleans-style production of The Pirates of Penzance—which began as a small in-house reading before the pandemic, then further developed in benefit concert last season, and which Todd was passionately committed to producing,” notes Scott Ellis.
Roundabout will welcome back many returning artists as part of the 2024-2025 season, including: Tony nominee & Obie winner Leigh Silverman, Outer Critics Circle Award nominee Meghan Kennedy, Obie Award winner Whitney White, Tony Award winner Rupert Holmes, music director Joseph Joubert, and Tony Award winner Warren Caryle, all of whom have worked with Roundabout previously.
Pulitzer Prize & Obie winner Sanaz Toossi makes her Broadway debut in 2024 with her play, English—which was first seen as part of the Roundabout Underground Reading Series in 2019. It was later scheduled for the Roundabout Underground in Fall 2020; when the pandemic upended the planned production, Roundabout collaborated with Atlantic Theater Company for an Off-Broadway production at the Linda Gross Theater in 2022. The play went on to win an Obie Award and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama that year. Obie winner Knud Adams returns to direct—most recently having staged Primary Trust last season—also making his Broadway debut.
Artists making their Roundabout Theatre Company debuts in the 2024-2025 season include: SAG Award winner Daniel Dae Kim, Tony Award winner & Pulitzer Prize finalist David Henry Hwang, Tony & Obie Award winner and 2010 MacArthur Foundation Fellow David Cromer, Outer Critics Circle Award winner Bess Wohl, and Tony & Olivier Award nominee Ramin Karimloo, and Tony, Emmy & SAG Award winner David Hyde Pierce—both of whom starred in Roundabout’s 2022 benefit concert performance of The Pirates of Penzance.
One additional production for Roundabout Underground will be announced at a later date. Further information including dates, casting, creative team, and single ticket on-sale dates for all the productions will also be announced soon.
