The Roundabout Theatre Company in New York City is celebrating its 50th Anniversary this year. The largest non-for-profit theatre company in America, Roundabout has grown from a small 150-seat theatre in a converted supermarket basement to operating five stages on and off Broadway. It reaches 700,000 theatergoers, students, educators and artists across the country and around the world every year.
This week, we’ve teamed up with Roundabout for a series of interviews about its 50th Anniversary Season. We begin today with Todd Haimes, the company’s Artistic Director.
Haimes joined Roundabout in 1983 working as Executive Director until 1990 when he became Artistic Director. We speak with him here about hits, misses, longevity, and legacy.
