25 Years on Broadway

Over the past 25 years, Roundabout has worked hard to earn its reputation as a company deeply committed to its artists and subscribers while steadfastly carving out a place in theater history as a not-for-profit operating on Broadway. In order to capture this important history, permanent archives were initiated in 2008 with dedicated funding from The Leon Levy Foundation. Roundabout’s archives contain tens of thousands of documents, photographs, video, set models, and costumes that provide physical evidence of the company’s role in NYC theatre and tangible manifestations of this very ephemeral art form.
This exhibit marks Roundabout’s 25 years as a formidable Broadway producer but also pays homage to the company’s impressive semi-centennial anniversary by showcasing selections of production and institutional material from the archives. While Roundabout has staged many remarkable shows over the past quarter century, the shows on display highlight four productions that define the fabric of Roundabout’s mission and reveal the scope of our production archives: a game-changing revival of Anna Christie, a groundbreaking production of Cabaret, a mission-based production of Waiting For Godot, and a truly landmark revival of She Loves Me.

The exhibit can be found on the 5th Floor of the American Airlines Theatre, and runs through December 4, 2016. The exhibit is open to The Cherry Orchard ticket-holders, Tuesday through Sunday, an hour before the show and during intermission.

We are grateful to The Leon Levy Foundation for their Founding Support of the Roundabout Archives. We appreciate the generosity of The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.
