Roundabout Announces Third Cohort in Roundabout Directors Group

Roundabout Theatre Company announced the third annual Leon Levy Roundabout Directors Group, launched in 2019 to provide career assistance to emerging directors.

This group adds to Roundabout's myriad artistic and career mentorship programs, including the Roundabout Directing Fellowship, the Theatrical Workforce Development Program and Space Jam, a support initiative for playwrights.

Roundabout's Associate Artistic Director Jill Rafson and Associate Artist Cristina Angeles lead the group with the mission to create an artistic community for directors at similar stages of their careers.

The cohort will begin meeting this fall to connect with established theater artists to offer mentorship and workshops on topics ranging from networking with playwrights, meeting with artistic administrators, and directing for TV/Film, to resident directing for commercial productions, working with casting directors, and finding representation.
