No Broadway theatre company is busier after awards season has ended than the Roundabout, which currently has two shows on its boards and is readying two more.
Preparing for a July 16 start-date is a revival of the musical 1776, directed by Scott Ellis. (See story on both the NY and Philadelphia stagings of this piece). Just announced is the next show at the Laura Pels: Misalliance, by George Bernard Shaw. David Warren directs this 1909 comedy about "intertwined courtships," with casting to be announced soon. The production begins July 18 with an opening set for Aug. 7.
On the current mainstage is a well-received production of London Assurance, featuring Brian Bedford and Katherine Meisle. Opening May 4 in the Off-Broadway Laura Pels space (in the same building) is the 50th anniversary production of Arthur Miller's All My Sons. Both shows run to June 22.
