Hop in, buckle up and hold on for dear life in this raucous family road trip.

Roundabout's powerful and poignant new comedy has captured the hearts of theatergoers and critics alike. Jamie Brewer ("American Horror Story"), Tony winner Debra Monk and Obie winner Mark Blum play adult siblings, one with Down syndrome, figuring out the family they never understood.

"There's a powerful beating heart in Lindsey Ferrentino's writing," (The Hollywood Reporter), and director Scott Ellis "strikes the ideal balance between pathos and levity in this astonishing play" (NY1). As The Wrap says, it "achieves something remarkable."

Note: On Wednesday and Saturday matinees, Edward Barbanell will be performing the title role of the show. On those occasions, the title role will be referred to as “Andy” and the title of the show will become Andy and the Orphans.

Recommended for ages 14 and up.

This is a limited engagement off-Broadway. A Roundabout commission.

Major support for Amy and the Orphans is provided by The Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation and the Laura Pels International Foundation for Theater.

This production is supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council. This project is also supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
