Daryl Roth BIO

Daryl Roth is a Tony Award-winning Broadway producer who has been a driving force in the theater industry for over 30 years. She is known for her innovative productions, which often tackle challenging and thought-provoking subject matter.



Born in 1945 in Lakewood, New Jersey, Roth grew up in a family that was deeply involved in the arts. Her father was a musician and her mother was a painter, and they encouraged their daughter to pursue her own creative interests. Roth attended the University of California, Berkeley, where she studied history and literature.

After college, Roth moved to New York City and began working in theater production. She quickly made a name for herself as a savvy and determined producer, and in 1983 she co-founded the off-Broadway theater company Second Stage Theatre. The company quickly gained a reputation for producing edgy and socially relevant plays, and Roth's leadership helped it to become a major force in the New York theater scene.

In 1996, Roth produced her first Broadway show, the musical "Three Tall Women" by Edward Albee. The production was a critical and commercial success, and it earned Roth her first Tony Award. Since then, she has produced over 100 Broadway shows, including such hits as "The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?" by Edward Albee, "August: Osage County" by Tracy Letts, and "Kinky Boots" by Harvey Fierstein and Cyndi Lauper.

Roth is known for her willingness to take risks and produce challenging material. She has produced several shows that deal with difficult social issues, including "Wit" by Margaret Edson, which explores the experience of a woman with terminal cancer, and "The Normal Heart" by Larry Kramer, which deals with the early years of the AIDS epidemic. Roth has also produced several shows that deal with mental illness, including "Next to Normal" by Tom Kitt and Brian Yorkey, which won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2010.

In addition to her work in theater, Roth is also involved in several philanthropic organizations. She is a board member of the Hetrick-Martin Institute, which provides support and advocacy for LGBTQ youth, and she is also a board member of the New York City Police Foundation, which supports the NYPD in its efforts to keep the city safe.

Roth's work has been recognized with numerous awards and honors. In addition to her Tony Award, she has received the Robert Whitehead Award for Outstanding Achievement in Commercial Theatre Producing, the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Body of Work, and the Drama League's Founders Award for Excellence in Directing and Producing.

Roth's impact on the theater industry is undeniable. Her willingness to take risks and produce challenging material has helped to push the boundaries of what is possible on stage, and her dedication to supporting emerging artists has helped to ensure that the theater remains a vibrant and vital art form. As she continues to produce shows and support new talent, Roth's influence on the theater world is sure to endure for years to come.
