Gold's 2009 Off-Broadway production of Circle Mirror Transformation, for Playwrights Horizons, was an extended hit and widely acclaimed.

The other members of Roundabout's artistic staff, under artistic director Todd Haimes, include Scott Ellis (associate artistic director), Jim Carnahan (director of artistic development/director of casting), Robyn Goodman (artistic consultant/curator, Roundabout Underground), Jill Rafson (literary manager/associate producer, Roundabout Underground), Josh Fiedler (literary associate/associate producer, Roundabout Underground) and Doug Hughes (resident director).

According to the not-for-profit that operates theatres Off-Broadway and on Broadway, Roundabout's associate artists "are experienced members of the theatre community who have forged a meaningful relationship with the not-for-profit organization. The associate artist title is a way of formalizing the relationship with an artist who has really become part of the Roundabout family. An associate artist can bring work to Roundabout that needs a developmental home, while Roundabout can discuss potential projects that are being explored for the institution. As an associate artist, Mr. Gold will be available to consult with the artistic director, and assist the theatre in various educational and development activities. The relationship is intended to be mutually beneficial."

Tigers Be Still is the fourth production of Roundabout Underground, an initiative launched in 2007 to introduce and cultivate artists in Roundabout's 62-seat Black Box Theatre, at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street, NYC, NY, 10036). The run was recently extended to Nov. 28 and is now sold out, Roundabout announced on Nov. 16.

Tigers Be Still "follows the spectacular misadventures of Sherry, an art teacher who, in the midst of mentoring a troubled teen and dealing with a tiger on the loose, faces her biggest challenge yet… getting her sister off the couch." Gold's recent credits include Nick Jones' The Coward (Lincoln Center) and Jollyship the Whiz-Bang (Ars Nova), Stephen Belber's Dusk Ring a Bell (Atlantic), Annie Baker's The Aliens (Rattlestick), Noah Haidle's Rag and Bone (Rattlestick), among others. From 2003 to 2006, he served as the dramaturg at The Wooster Group. He is a NYTW Usual Suspect, a Drama League Directing Fellow, a recipient of the Princess Grace Award, and a graduate of the Juilliard Directing Program.
