But he also feels fortunate to play a part in each production’s Broadway story. “This entire season has been the most extraordinary experience, starting with Springsteen on Broadway and a remarkable spring of Angels and Frozen and Mean Girls—full of people I adore and admire and love. The whole season has been one bit moment of pinch-me,” he says in the video above.
Roth is also a producer on the 11-time Tony-nominated Angels in America. “‘Angels in America, most Tony-nominated play in Broadway history’ is a sentence I can't quite wrap my head around,” he says. “We are extraordinarily grateful and deeply proud of every person who is a part of making this show and every person who has opened their hearts to it. This play belongs to all of us.”
While he’s helped make Tony history this year, Roth continues to look forward. “I’m excited by a big canvas—a Broadway that can continue to expand and allow for all different kinds of work, all different kinds of voices, and all different kinds of stories. And we have to do better on all of that, but every year it gets a little bigger and a little bigger and a little bigger. It's a Broadway I want to be a part of.”
