Directed by Andrew Lawton, "A Roundabout Road to Broadway" chronicles the theatre's road to success, revealing the artistic leaps of faith along the way — from producing plays out of a supermarket basement, to battling bankruptcy to becoming one of New York's most reputable cultural institutions. The company bills it as "one of the most remarkable comeback stories in NYC history."
