Continuing their groundbreaking exploration of the racial tensions that are indelibly imprinted on America's past and present history-in-the-making, the Roundabout Theatre company presents a hotly anticipated revival of Charles Fuller's 1981 Pulitzer Prize-winning play A Soldier's Play. Premiering Off-Broadway and featuring a then-unknown Denzel Washington, the thought-provoking drama was also awarded the Drama Critics' Circle Award for Best American Play and revived in a critically acclaimed Off-Broadway production in 2005.

April 18 - 23, 2023

Jersey Boys is the smash-hit jukebox musical that gives us the true, sometimes gritty, and always spectacularly entertaining story of falsetto idol Franki Valli and The Four Seasons. The blue-collar boys in the shiny Lurex suits strode onto the scene in 1965, wowing the public for 20 years with hits such as "Big Girls Don't Cry","Oh What a Night", and "Walk Like a Man," and many more. But before fame and fortune, comes a difficult, and sometimes not entirely legal, journey to stardom.
