Roundabout Theatre Company will have an especially busy fall with the opening of its third Broadway venue.  Bye Bye Birdie will christen the new Henry Miller's Theatre, and the not-for-profit company will also present two new plays to Broadway audiences.

Beginning performances Sept. 13 at the American Airlines Theatre is the U.S. premiere of After Miss Julie.  This adaptation of August Strindberg's 1888 Miss Julie moves the action to 1945 England against the backdrop of the Labour Party's victory over the Tories.  The play examines gender and class as manifested in the struggle between the young, willful aristocrat Julie and her status-obsessed servant.

Mark Brokaw directs a three-person cast featuring film stars Sienna Miller and Jonny Lee Miller and Tony nominee Marin Ireland.
