Breaking: Roundabout Will Bring CAROLINE, OR CHANGE to Broadway in 2020, Starring Olivier Award-Winner Sharon D Clarke
Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director/CEO) has just announced a new Broadway production of Tony Kushner & Jeanine Tesori's Tony Award nominated and Olivier Award winning musical Caroline, or Change starring 2019 Olivier Award winner Sharon D Clarke reprising her role as "Caroline" from the acclaimed West End production.
Caroline, or Change will begin performances on March 13, 2020 and open on April 7, 2020 at Studio 54 on Broadway (254 West 54th Street).
Direct from a smash-hit run on London's West End, this new production of Tony Kushner (Angels in America) and Jeanine Tesori's (Fun Home) explosive musical launches to "the titanic dimensions of greatness" (Ben Brantley, The New York Times). The "incandescent" (Holly Williams, Time Out London) Sharon D Clarke stars in an exhilarating, Olivier Award-winning performance as Caroline, an African-American maid whose world of 1963 Louisiana ripples with change both large and small. Erupting with transcendent songs and larger-than-life imagination, Caroline, or Change explores how, in times of great transformation, even the simplest acts shake the earth.
Additional cast members will be announced soon.
Roundabout welcomes back composer Jeanine Tesori following the Sutton Foster led revival of her musical Violet in 2014 and Michael Longhurst, Artistic Director of London's renowned Donmar Warehouse, who directed Jake Gyllenhaal in Nick Payne's If There Is I Haven't Found it Yet in 2012.
