Roundabout Underground® fosters new works by emerging theatre artists. It allows Roundabout to take artistic risks that are not viable on its larger stages, whether giving a debut production to an emerging writer or allowing an experienced director to go back to his or her creative roots.
In addition to receiving an opportunity to debut their works as full-scale productions, up-and-coming playwrights receive the significant artistic and financial support of the country's largest not-for-profit theatre and a nurturing environment in which to debut their work.
Roundabout Underground productions are produced in Roundabout's Black Box Theatre located within the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.
Note: Roundabout Underground productions cannot be purchased as part of a season package.
Major support for the Roundabout Underground is generously provided by Jodi Glucksman.
