DARLING GRENADINE, Directed by Michael Berresse, and More Set for Roundabout's 2019-20 Off-Broadway Season
Roundabout Theatre Company has just announced a line-up of all new work Off-Broadway, including a new Roundabout commission by Roundabout Underground alumnus Jireh Breon Holder (Too Heavy for Your Pocket) and the first Roundabout Underground musical in more than a decade.
The 2019-2020 Off-Broadway season at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold & Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre will feature the world premiere of 72 Miles to Go... by Hilary Bettis; the world premiere of the Roundabout commission ...what the end will be by Jireeh Breon Holder, directed by Margot Bordelon; and the new musical Darling Grenadine, book, music & lyrics by Daniel Zaitchik, directed and choregraphed by Michael Berresse which originated as a part of the 2018 Roundabout Underground Reading Series.
As part of Roundabout's New Play initiative, each participating Underground playwright receives a commission for a new play, demonstrating an unparalleled level of commitment to writers' careers and the future of theatre in New York.
72 MILES TO GO...
Winter 2020 In The Laura Pels Theatre
Seventy-two miles. That's the space between Nogales, Mexico and Tucson, Arizona-and the world of distance that separates a mother at a shelter and her American-born husband and children. This premiere from Juilliard playwright Hilary Bettis ("The Americans") follows a splintered family over 10 years of strength, struggle and love, as they face the profoundly personal drama of immigration.
...what the end will be
Spring 2020 In The Laura Pels Theatre
Roundabout welcomes back playwright Jireh Breon Holder following his triumphant 2017 Underground debut, Too Heavy For Your Pocket. In this new work, a Mimi Commission for Roundabout, three generations of men live under one roof and grapple with their own truths of what it means to be black and gay. It's an exploration of pride, pain, and patience through the unflinching eyes of fathers and sons.
Winter 2020 In The Roundabout Underground
Roundabout Underground debuts its first new musical in a decade. When charismatic songwriter Harry falls for clever chorus girl Louise, all of Manhattan glitters with the blush of new love. But what happens when the sparkling fantasy begins to dissolve? Bubbling over with charm, wit, and whimsy, Darling Grenadine navigates the tension between romance and reality, light and dark, bitter and sweet. Featuring a vibrantly eclectic score and stirring book and lyrics by Daniel Zaitchik.
