For more than 20 years, Roundabout Theatre Company's innovative Theatre Plus programs have enhanced the theatre-going experience for thousands of audience members.

In addition to enjoying hit Broadway and off-Broadway productions, Roundabout ticket holders can learn more about the themes of the show, gain insight into the creative process, and attend a discussion with the stars.

Theatre Talks (Valid for all Tuesday Series)

Every Tuesday learn more about the history of the production and its creators.

A Roundabout teaching artist will prepare you for what you’re about to see and will leave you with a deeper understanding of the playwright and the world of the play.

Discussions are complimentary for all ticket holders on Tuesday evenings.

At the American Airlines and Laura Pels Theatres, talks begin 30 minutes before curtain. At the Stephen Sondheim Theatre and Studio 54, talks begin one hour before curtain. 


Celebrity Series

Roundabout’s Celebrity Series brings members of the cast and crew to you, when a Roundabout teaching artist leads a 20-minute post-show discussion about what really happens behind the scenes of a production. 


Lecture Series

Explore the themes of each production after the curtain goes down.

Stay in your seats after the performance to attend a 50-minute discussion with a member of the creative team, distinguished artist, scholar, historian, or critic, hosted by a Roundabout teaching artist.


Read transcripts of previous Lecture Series events.

Teachers Night Series

Take a break from class, and then bring theatre back to your classroom. Roundabout offers substantial discounts to our shows to teachers with a valid union card. This series also includes a pre-show talk and a lively post-show discussion between you and your fellow Teachers Night Series subscribers. (One union card for every two subscriptions.)


Community Conversations

Community Conversations is a pilot program that aims to foster reflection, conversation, and connection, striving to deepen audience members experience with the play and to each other. This format is intended to create space for audience members to share their experience, building a sense of mutual understanding and therefore, a stronger Roundabout community.

Community Conversations are free, open to all, and last 20 minutes.


Other Theatre Plus Activities

Periodically, Roundabout hosts ancillary events with thematic relevance to a particular production, such as complimentary post-show talkbacks with special guests. Upcoming events will be posted here.
