Last night, Roundabout Theatre Company honored Sam Mendes with the Jason Roberts Award for Excellence in Theatre. The criterion for this award is to have made an "indelible impact on the theatre world." The award was named after the founder of Roundabout and is given each year in remembrance of his own impact on the theatre world.
Sam Mendes is a notable director whose career has spanned both Broadway and the West End. His most recent project was the 2014 Broadway Revival of Cabaret. He also directed the premiere of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, currently running on the West End. He also directed the 2003 Broadway Revival of Gypsy and the West End's 1998 Company.
