Roundabout's USUAL GIRLS Will Hold Benefit Performance
Roundabout Theatre Company announces a one-night only benefit performance of the sold out Roundabout Underground world-premiere production of Usual Girls by Ming Peiffer, directed by Tyne Rafaeli on Wednesday, December 19 at 7:00PM. All tickets are $250.
All proceeds from this evening will directly fund Roundabout Underground, including commissions for Peiffer's next play, Selina Fillinger's New York debutSomething Clean in Spring 2019 and more than two dozen readings and workshops for new work this season.
"When we launched Roundabout Underground in 2007 with Stephen Karam's Speech & Debate, we didn't fully realize the effect the program would have on the lives and careers of dozens of young writers and directors. It has been a joy to see the work of Underground alumni playwrights produced on stages around the world, as part of hit television shows, and win Tony Awards! Roundabout invests around $500,000 in every Underground production, an important and worthy investment that we have no chance of earning back with only 62 seats in the Black Box Theatre. With the success of Ming's riveting and powerful play, I'm pleased we are able to host this event to underwrite a small portion of this investment," notes Roundabout Artistic Director/CEO Todd Haimes.
