“A profound quiet arrives at the end of Lynn Nottage’s new play, Intimate Apparel, and not just because the lead character has been left alone on stage. It’s the calm that descends when a production has achieved a near perfect balance between content and execution. Quite simply, it’s difficult to imagine a more promising inauguration for the Roundabout Theatre Company’s new off-Broadway space, [the Laura Pels Theatre]….” Associated Press, March 2004
 
The Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre opened in March 2004 with the acclaimed premiere of Lynn Nottage’s Intimate Apparel: the story of an African-American seamstress who sews intimates for socialites and harlots alike as she looks for love and respect in turn-of-the-20th-century Manhattan. The production starred Viola Davis and was directed by Daniel Sullivan, and Roundabout is pleased to welcome Viola, Daniel and the original cast back for the 10th Anniversary Benefit Reading. In the ten years since that landmark production, the center has expanded beyond the Laura Pels Theatre to include the Black Box Theatre and now a new education center. The Steinberg Center continues to reflect Roundabout’s commitment to produce new works by established and emerging writers as well as revivals of classic plays.
