Roundabout Broadway Highlights: WAITING FOR GODOT

One of the greatest joys of our job is seeing our audiences transformed by a theatre performance. At some point in Roundabout's 46-year history, you've likely experienced a play or musical that has inspired you. Roundabout has been fortunate to produce award-winning productions on Broadway for 20 years now. You may even recall our first Broadway production of Anna Christie at the Criterion Center in 1992.

In celebration of our 20th Anniversary on Broadway, we're highlighting 8 special productions from our Archives that helped us grow to our position today as one of the nation's most influential not-for-profits.
