Tucked away in the basement of the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, Roundabout Underground is a small black box space which showcases new works created by talented up-and-coming playwrights.
This off-Broadway hidden gem is just one arm of the well-known not-for-profit organization, Roundabout Theatre Company.
Roundabout Underground produces full seasons of world premiere plays at an unbeatable flat ticket price of $25 per show. With just 62 seats in the house, you’ll enjoy a more intimate experience of whichever production you choose to attend.
Most recently, the theater hosted the premiere of award-winning work by 2016 Yale School of Drama graduate Jiréh Breon Holder, Too Heavy for Your Pocket. Now, experience the darkly funny new play Bobbie Clearly. Written by Roundabout Underground’s current playwright, Alex Lubischer, this production is a comedy about a crime in small-town Nebraska.
Bobbie killed Casey in the middle of a cornfield in Milton, Nebraska. Two years later, Milton’s residents are ready to tell you their sides of the story.
Directed by Will Davis, this off-Broadway production features an ensemble cast of “eccentric characters.” Bobbie Clearly begins performances on March 8, and will run through May 6.
For fans of great theater at an affordable price—and those interested in watching amazing work by up-and-coming talent—the plays at Roundabout Underground are a must year-round.
