Roundabout Theatre Company has announced three of the selections for its 2011-12 season, which will include a New York premiere play, a musical revival and a classic play. Exact dates for the productions will be announced shortly.
Bob Fosse’s Dancin’, a tribute to the legendary Broadway choreographer, will bow on Broadway at Studio 54 in the fall of 2011 directed by Graciela Daniele. Fosse’s original choreography will be recreated to a score of jazz, classical and pop songs. Creative consultation will be provided by Fosse's daughter, Nicole.
Fall 2011 will also bring the New York premiere of Stephen Karam’s Sons of the Prophet. The play, about a Pennsylvania-based Lebanese family in crisis, is a co-production with Boston’s Huntington Theatre, and will receive its world premiere there in April 2011 before opening at Roundabout’s off-Broadway Laura Pels Theatre. Karam's Speech & Debate was the debut production of Roundabout's black box theater series, Roundabout Underground.
Bowing in winter 2012 at the Laura Pels Theatre will be John Osborne’s Look Back in Anger, the drama about four people struggling to live together and love each other in 1950s England. Roundabout Artistic Associate Sam Gold, who helmed the recent Roundabout Underground play Tigers Be Still, will direct.
Cast members and design teams, as well as the season's additional offerings, will be announced shortly.
