The Cherry Orchard

star 1star 2star 3

Until December 4, 2016

Set in a Russia where the old social orders are under threat, Chekhov's The Cherry Orchard ranks as one of the greatest plays ever written. This new adaptation comes courtesy of hotshot playwright Stephen Karam, whose drama The Humans bowled over audiences and critics alike on Broadway, and stars Oscar nominee Diane Lane alongside Joel Grey and John Glover.

24 Hour Plays on Broadway

November 14, 2016

Six playwrights, six directors, twenty four actors, and a host of special musical guests have one day to create six plays from scratch, rehearse them, and then perform them in front of a Broadway audience. This November Pulitzer Prize winner David Lindsay-Abaire (Rabbit Hole) is among the playwrights taking the plunge, while the casts include Daveed Diggs (Hamilton), Hugh Dancy (Hannibal) and Rachel Dratch (SNL).

The Price

February 16-May 7, 2017

Oscar and Emmy nominee Danny DeVito makes his Broadway debut in Arthur Miller's examination of family values, where he will be joined by John Turturro, Tony Shalhoub and Jessica Hecht! Taking the role of a devious furniture dealer appraising furniture of a deceased man, he finds that he isn't the only one with a hidden agenda. As with many of Miller's plays, the title is a play on the key themes of the story; the tangible price of the furniture to be sold off, and the price caused by somebody's decision. This Roundabout Theatre Company production will be helmed by Terry Kinney, the co-founder of the Steppenwolf in Chicago.

Originally known as the Selwyn Theatre, the American Airlines Theatre is a historic Italian Renaissance-style Broadway theater in New York City. The theater was designed by George Keister and built by the Selwyn brothers in 1918. It was used for musicals and drama productions, and was then converted to host film productions. For a short time, it was used as a visitor's center, and then wasn't used for much of the 1900s, until 1997 when it was restored and renovated.
