Classic Plays

Beginning with Strindberg’s The Father during our first season in 1966, Roundabout has produced over 200 play revivals, evolving into New York’s preeminent hub for contemporary artists and audiences to rediscover classic plays, both familiar and lesser known. In our 50-plus years, we have shined a new spotlight on the works of such essential playwrights as:

Samuel Beckett Arthur Miller Terrence Rattigan
Noël Coward Clifford Odets George Bernard Shaw
Anton Chekhov Eugene O'Neill August Strindberg
Henrik Ibsen John Osborne Sophie Treadwell
We rely on donors and supporters for the ongoing ability to mount first-class productions of these treasures, from favorite titles to fascinating obscurities.
