On Front Cover: Cast of Twelve Angry Men
he close of the 2004-2005 season marks the beginning of the fourth decade of Roundabout Theatre Company’s existence. As we turn 40, the company has settled into three remarkably different renovated spaces: the American Airlines Theatre, the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, host to the Laura Pels Theatre, and Studio 54, happily ending our well-documented odyssey through the New York real estate market. But it’s more satisfying an achievement to have filled our theatres with such fine productions. That’s how we know that our trio of houses has become a home. Roundabout’s history suggests that great theatre artists can transform any space – supermarket, cinema, or union hall. As much as we enjoy our new venues, the 2004-2005 season, even more than most, was all about the artists. It started with our subscribers being treated to an intimate performance from Frances Sternhagen and Matthew Broderick in The Foreigner, thanks to the embracing dimensions of the new Laura Pels Theatre. That comedy revival was followed by two new plays, McReele and The Paris Letter, both directed by Roundabout’s newest Associate Artist, Doug Hughes, whose work is blossoming all over New York. Over at the American Airlines Theatre, Roundabout’s longest running play in its history, Twelve Angry Men directed by Scott Ellis, and the rarely preformed English classic The Constant Wife welcomed back three old friends: award-winning actors Philip Bosco, Boyd Gaines, and Kate Burton, all of whom first performed before our subscribers at least 20 years ago. At Studio 54, Roundabout finished its first phase of renovations and we broke historic boundaries when we produced Pacific Overtures, the first Broadway show to be staged and designed by native Japanese theatre artists.
We also learned an important lesson with A Streetcar Named Desire: our theatres have identities that go beyond sight lines and seating capacities. Each space is unique and can’t be confined to one dramatic genre. Originally, one theatre was to be strictly for musicals, another for revivals, and our Off-Broadway space was destined to house only new plays. But Streetcar was the perfect tenant for Studio 54: the classic New Orleans wrought-iron
FROM THE TOP lattice work outside Stanley and Stella’s steamy French Quarter apartment, brilliantly designed by Robert Brill, blended beautifully into the distressed, decadent feel of the former nightclub’s proscenium. And the revival of the 20-year-old play The Foreigner allowed our subscribers to enjoy Broderick’s performance in a cozy OffBroadway theatre. Underneath the Laura Pels Theatre, Roundabout christened its newest space, a black box theatre, with remarkable student productions from our New Century High Schools, Bronx Theatre High School and Manhattan Theatre Lab, which opened its doors last September. We also broke records for student attendance: over 11,000 students saw Roundabout productions during the 2004-2005 season. There’s still some physical work to do (bathroom renovations at Studio 54 are nearing completion), but we believe our artistic work has never been better. This level of artistry and commitment is only made possible by two important ensembles: Roundabout’s generous friends, whether individuals, corporations, foundations, or government agencies; and our fellow Board and staff members. We thank Paul Lacouture, Tom Gleason, and Theresa Lang for their term on the Board, and we welcome new members Soledad DeLeon Hurst, Steven Schroko, Mike de Graffenried, Carole S. Krumland, Charles Randolph-Wright, and Chuck Imhof. We are proud to be able to offer actors, designers, and directors rewarding artistic opportunities in well-appointed, aesthetically pleasing homes, and a theatre community that stretches from our offices on 39th Street to Studio 54. Roundabout’s family knows that when we open our houses on Broadway or Off to great artists, our friends and subscribers will find we’ve made a home for great theatre.

Todd Haimes Artistic Director
When Doug Hughes stages A Touch of the Poet at Studio 54 in the 2005-2006 season, he’ll become the first theatre artist to have directed in all three of Roundabout’s current venues. Amazingly, he pulled off this feat in a single calendar year. Of course, each theatre has its own allure. But as of September 2005, as Hughes readied Richard Greenberg’s A Naked Girl on the Appian Way to kick off the new season in the American Airlines Theatre, he could only speak from previous experience about the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. Clearly, its assets made his work a pleasure.
needed many locations and a constant flow of scenery and the Pels has shown that the space is wonderfully flexible,” he says. Hughes tested the space’s limits with McReele, his debut at the Pels. The play featured a scene in which Hughes had one of the performers speak from the house side of the footlights, walking down an aisle speaking as if she were a TV talk show host. Hughes had another actor walk offstage and use a side exit, which led to a hallway rather than backstage. As Matthew Armstrong, the Theatre Manager at the Steinberg Center points out, Hughes’ use of lighting “fully exposed the theatre’s fire communications panel, which is normally hidden from the audience’s view, as well as the vestibule to the backstage, all of which contributed to creating the reality of a television studio set.” “It’s a great reclamation of an Off-Broadway space that had fallen on hard times,” says Hughes. It felt unloved and derelict. Now it’s very vital.”
D O U G H U G H E S I N T E R V I E W W I T H “The Laura Pels Theatre seems to me one of the most beautiful small theatres for sight lines,” enthused the Tony Award-winning director. Hughes should know better than anybody: he has staged two of the first four plays that Roundabout produced at the Laura Pels Theatre: McReele and The Paris Letter. “I didn’t waste a lot of time staging around sight line issues – there are none. So staging a play in the Pels is a mint of freedom,” he says. “The architect has taken on the role of the audience. He created the widest seats, and even those in the newly constructed balcony give great lines.” Hughes pauses to search for the right choice of words. “It’s intimate… the audience doesn’t feel dispersed, they feel aggregated there.” Recalling his back-to-back accomplishments in the space last season, Hughes is amazed at what his designers accomplished with veritably modest backstage space. “Paris Letter

Looking forward to his now completed work on A Naked Girl on the Appian Way at the American Airlines Theatre, Hughes appreciates the theatre’s unique character. “It’s grand and welcoming and makes audience members feel like they’re going to witness something wonderful and special. It’s so tastefully opulent in the tradition of all the great Broadway houses.” He’s particularly pleased to be opening Greenberg’s comedy in such a home. “The fact that such a Broadway theatre will house a brand new American comedy is a wonderful thing. It’s just where Richard Greenberg’s play belongs. There’s something stylish about it that makes it ready for that proscenium frame.” And as for working at Studio 54, Hughes sees the space as “a found object with a wonderfully decadent aura from the Seventies hanging over it that’s perfect for A Touch of the Poet’s slightly darker energy and sense of ruin and dissolution.”

Few actors have trod as many of Roundabout’s boards as the intrepid Philip Bosco. Now in his mid-70s, the Theatre Hall of Fame inductee and Obie Award winner for Lifetime Achievement began his relationship with Roundabout at
Bosco can’t quite understand how Twelve Angry Men became “Sixteen Joyous Actors.” “We didn’t expect to get so close. It’s very puzzling, very odd. Even the understudies were integral. So that’s 16 of us and we were all puzzled. The surroundings were conducive and the quality of the casting was superb. It was a beautiful experience.”
one of the company’s earliest renovation jobs, the converted movie theatre on 23rd Street. Bosco was a 20-year stage veteran when in 1979-80, he starred in A Month in the Country. His subsequent acclaimed performances for Roundabout
Misalliance at Stage 1; Moliére’s The Learned Ladies at Roundabout’s temporary home at the Haft Theatre; and Sir Thomas More in A Man for All Seasons at the 17th Street Theatre. A quarter of a century after his Roundabout debut, Bosco earned his sixth Tony Award nomination in Twelve Angry Men at the American Airlines Theatre, his fourth Roundabout venue.
Bosco chalks up credit for Twelve Angry Men’s success to director Scott Ellis and the Roundabout staff at the American Airlines Theatre. “Ellis was tremendous,” says Bosco. “He said, ‘I know you all, so go for it. Move wherever you want and let me sit like a critic and I’ll pick and choose what I like.’ When we had our first paying preview audience, at the end they just stood up, en masse, with a huge ovation. It shocked us. Audiences went bananas after every single performance.” As much as Bosco appreciated the physical space and the design of the set, he also cherished the treatment he received from the people backstage. According to the stage veteran, “The company manager and crew were perfect, and ran everything like a well-made watch.” Bosco also singles out Wardrobe Supervisor Susan Fallon. “She was out of a dream: a den mother,
P H I L I P B O S C O I N T E R V I E W W I T H One late summer afternoon, Bosco took a few moments to recall his latest Roundabout triumph. And in a career that counts dozens and dozens of stage experiences, Bosco numbers Twelve Angry Men as one of his highlights. The joy began before audiences even arrived. “Rehearsals were a glorious experience, one of the best of our lives,” Bosco insists. “The entire cast got so close.” He had known Tom Aldredge (Juror #9) before; and he had worked with Boyd Gaines (Juror #3) at Roundabout decades earlier when Gaines made one of his earliest New York stage appearances in A Month in the Country. “He was just a callow youth,” Bosco laughs affectionately, before recalling how Gaines went on to help Roundabout make a grand entrance into musical theatre with awardwinning performances in She Loves Me and Company.

a confidante. She brought us gifts. So we all relaxed and felt like family.” According to company manager Denys Baker, that’s the staff’s mandate: to make every Roundabout house feel like a home. And as for the actor’s assessment of the physical theatre, his review is as glowing: “The American Airlines Theatre is perfect and its backstage area is beautifully appointed. The dressing rooms are unusually comfortable and spacious, unlike some Broadway theatres that are wretched. There was a room with food and TV and many of us went up to the Penthouse Lobby with friends who came to see the show and had coffee.” “The acoustics were great and none of us needed to be miked,” he continues, “though we were told they had area mikes to boost the volume slightly for subscribers who had problems hearing. It’s an excellent theatre. Even the last row of balcony seats aren’t that far away from the stage.” Bosco pauses. “I don’t know if you’ll ever see a theatre built like that again.”

What does a theatre sound like? No theatre artists deal with this Zen-like question more intimately than sound designers. They are the ears of every production, ensuring
No wonder Roundabout seized on Van Tieghem’s sonic talents. By December 2005, he will have contributed original music and sound design to McReele and The Paris Letter at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre; The Constant Wife and A Naked Girl in the Appian Way at the American Airlines Theatre; and A Touch of the Poet at Studio 54. Not that this relationship is entirely new: Van Tieghem first worked with Roundabout when he designed music and sound for Uncle Vanya at the Brooks Atkinson in 2000.
that all sounds made onstage are heard equally in every seat. They not only must concoct the occasional beeping car horn, blaring siren, or rumble of a distant thunderstorm – they must supply the entire aural atmosphere for each script, helping transport audiences into the imaginary world of each play.
Naturally, the question arises whether the venue and theatre architecture affect Van Tieghem’s musical designs. The Woodstock, New York-based artist ponders the question for a moment. “It’s hard to say consciously. Of course it must. I know that when I was writing music for The Constant Wife at the American Airlines Theatre I had to deal with the notion of a curtain coming up and down, which it doesn’t at the Laura Pels Theatre. So right away, that lends a different feel. The incidental music I wrote tried to
D A V I D V A N T I E G H E M I N T E R V I E W W I T H T H E Few sound designers know what a theatre sounds like as intimately as David Van Tieghem, who by the end of 2005 will have designed five Roundabout productions in one calendar year. He is also perhaps the only artist in his field who has actually “played” a theatre as if an instrument. An award-winning composer, performer, and percussionist, Van Tieghem once “played” the Victory Theatre on 42nd Street – before it was renovated and dubbed the “New Victory” – by strolling throughout the decaying building, drumming on the back of seats, crumbling stairs, and old lead pipes as part of an experimental play that explored the nature of ghosts in the theatre. Trained as a percussionist, Van Tieghem went on to perform with everyone from Laurie Anderson to Big Apple Circus, accompanying rock bands like the Talking Heads and Pink Floyd, and has been commissioned to write scores for a bevy of dance companies, including those of Twyla Tharp and Bill T. Jones.

take in the ambience of the space. I mean, it’s a grand old theatre. The music and my arrangements are influenced by that vibe.” He admits his composition of incidental music for A Naked Girl on the Appian Way would have been much different if the play had been staged at the Laura Pels. “I would have done a much smaller sound. Instead, I went for something more lush and orchestral.” Creating the music and sounds for each script in consultation with the director is just the first step of Van Tieghem’s job. He must also ensure that every patron can hear both his work and every word spoken by the actors. Van Tieghem is looking forward to his first foray at Studio 54, A Touch of the Poet. “I like the way the theatre looks, especially the proscenium, which seems to be slightly crumbling. That suggests to us, director Doug Hughes and I, that maybe we should do more with surround sound.” Van Tieghem thinks again. “I’ve done a lot of shows with Roundabout and I have nothing but good things to say. I design by feel and I like the feel of their theatres.”

As an organization committed to enhancing the classroom learning experience through theatre, Roundabout Theatre Company’s education programs have become a vital tool for many New York City public schools. Roundabout serves students and teachers in all five boroughs of New York City and the surrounding area, focusing primarily on underserved communities. Roundabout has a wide offering of educational programs that all use theatre as a model for learning – from study guides and student matinees, to professional development for teachers, to in-depth partnerships with three New Century high schools where students utilize theatre for all facets of learning. Every program is distinct and tailored to the individual student, teacher, and school. But each has a common goal – to
Roundabout had an unprecedented number of students attend productions this season: 11,927 students from 167 schools from 9 different states. The season was particularly suited to student audiences with productions of Twelve Angry Men and A Streetcar Named Desire, and thus led to a tremendous increase in the reach of the program. Extending the breadth even further, Roundabout opened the doors of a third New Century high school – Manhattan Theatre Lab. Under the direction of Principal Margaret Salvante-McCann, Roundabout’s former Education Director, the school opened in September 2004 with a class of 107 freshmen.
R O U N D A B O U T During the 2004-2005 season, Roundabout spent $1.6 million on its education programs. If it were not for the generous support of many individuals, corporations, foundations, and government agencies, these low- and non-income generating programs would not be possible. Roundabout relies on contributed income for the support necessary to continue to develop in-depth partnerships with schools, send artists into classrooms, provide teacher training programs, and to offer free and subsidized tickets. As one of the country’s leading cultural institutions, Roundabout is committed to sharing its staff and resources to fill a great need in the community. By reading plays and exploring themes of dramatic literature, attending professional performances, participating in talk backs with cast members, and engaging in thoughtful dialogue with classmates, students are developing skills they need to succeed in life. For more information on how you can get involved or to request a copy of the Education Report, which describes each program in depth, please contact the education department at (212) 642-9629.

Producing Partners Producing Partners is an in-depth program that connects the process of theatre production to project-based learning objectives and curriculum standards. The yearlong program is tailored to meet the needs of individual schools and takes place in several classes or grade levels in each school.
Page to Stage Page to Stage is a residency program that uses theatre to teach literacy and includes ten classroom visits by teaching artists, student attendance at two Roundabout productions followed by discussions with the cast, and study guides sharing the perspectives of directors and designers — all of which lead to the development of students’ own dramatic works.
Theatre Access Theatre Access provides discount matinee tickets to Roundabout productions for student groups from throughout the tri-state area. Teachers are invited to participate in professional development workshops and can receive lesson plans to prepare students for a trip to Roundabout. Pre-show workshops are also available for students.
Professional Development Roundabout offers a variety of workshops to enhance each educator’s ability to use theatre as an effective teaching tool. Workshops provide opportunities for teachers to stimulate their creative impulses and ideas while practicing theatre activities in the context of educational learning standards.

Roundabout’s Spring Gala – Raising more than $1,000,000 for Roundabout’s Musical Theatre Fund, is one thrilling, star-studded night.
SONDHEIM: A Musical Gala The generosity of Roundabout’s donors is always astonishing to us, and never more so than at this year’s Spring Gala. Led by the efforts of Gala Chairs Perry and Marty Granoff, our supporters helped us achieve a milestone in our history by raising more than $1 million for Roundabout's Musical Theatre Fund in one thrilling, star-studded night. This record-breaking amount helps fund Roundabout’s musical workshops, readings and full-scale productions. At this year’s Spring Gala we honored an esteemed member of Roundabout’s artistic family with the Jason Robards Award for Excellence in Theatre: Stephen Sondheim. Inarguably one of the greatest Actor Bill Irwin and wife Martha Roth with Lois Robards (right) composer/lyricists in Broadway history, Sondheim’s body of work has continuously redefined what a Broadway musical could be. He brought urbane wit and psychological complexity to musical theatre, resulting in some of the most remarkable theatrical creations to appear on Broadway including A Little Night Music, Sweeney Todd, Sunday in the Park with George and Into The Woods. Since the inception of our Great American Musical series in 1993, Roundabout has revived four of Sondheim’s musicals: Company, Follies, last season’s Tony Award winner Assassins, and this Gala performer and Twelve Angry Men star Boyd Gaines, director Scott Ellis and Gala performer season’s Pacific Overtures.

On April 11, 2005, nearly 500 guests gathered at Pier Sixty at Chelsea Piers to pay tribute to Sondheim’s remarkable career. On a picture-perfect spring evening, guests were treated to dinner on the edge of the Hudson as Artistic Director Todd Haimes and writer John Weidman presented Mr. Sondheim with the prestigious award. The highlight of the evening was an original musical Jason Robards Award Recipient Stephen Sondheim, Gala Co-Chairs Perry and Marty Granoff and writer John Weidman tribute directed by Roundabout's Associate Artistic Director, Scott Ellis. The program featured spectacular performances by an incredible array of talent: Christine Baranski, Laura Benanti, Mario Cantone, Michael Cerveris, Veanne Cox, Alan Cumming, Raul Esparza, Boyd Gaines, Judith Ivey, John Kander, Judy Kuhn, Cyndi Lauper, Donna Murphy, Mandy Patinkin, Bernadette Peters and more. Members of the New York City Opera Children’s Chorus joined Ms. Murphy on stage for the stirring final number, “Children Will Listen.” Board member Barbara Schaps Thomas and Gala performers Raul Esparza and Donna Murphy
The night was a thrilling success thanks to our loyal donors who supported the event and the remarkable artists who volunteered their talents. Meanwhile, Sondheim’s extraordinary music was the perfect reminder of why our Musical Theatre Fund is so important: it allows Roundabout to preserve and expand America’s musical theatre heritage by supporting revivals that might otherwise never see the bright lights of a Broadway stage.

Dear Friends: Thank you so much for being part of the Roundabout family. It’s wonderful to look back on a season filled with great theatre, and to know that we were able to share it together. We feel very lucky to have so many generous friends who support our work, on stage and off. As a not-for-profit theatre, we depend on our donors to help keep our stages filled and our education programs thriving. Because ticket sales cover only a portion of our producing expenses, our Annual Fund donors make up the difference – we truly couldn’t do it without you. And if you’ve ever attended a student matinee performance and talk-back with the cast, you have seen our Education Department in action. We’d love to share these, or any other education programs with you, so please feel free to give us a call if you are interested in learning more about our work in the schools. One of the things most important to us is spending time with you throughout the year. We want to have the opportunity to say “thank you” in person as often as we can, and for you to feel at home at all three of our theatres. Each year we schedule a variety of behind-the-scenes events so we can have personal time with you. Many of our Chairman’s Circle members have attended one of our intimate pre-theatre dinners, with a guest artist sharing insights about the production. Likewise, it’s a treat to welcome our many generous foundation and corporate donors for cocktail receptions and other private events with our artists. We hope that you will be with us for many events – and great productions – for seasons to come. Finally, we want to thank the many people who so generously donate their time to Roundabout. Our dedicated Board members are the ultimate volunteers, giving not only critical funding, but also their time and expertise throughout the season. We are also lucky to have an amazing crew of volunteers who help us with projects large and small, behind the scenes and in our administrative offices. This season we honored Bill Huxley as our Volunteer of the Year, and special thanks go to our Volunteer Coordinator, Pat Stockhausen. It means so much to know we have such great friends. Thank you again for everything you do to help Roundabout succeed. We look forward to seeing you at the theatre soon! Warm regards,
