Broadway isn’t the only place to find captivating theatre. Off-Broadway is home to many exciting shows and has also served as a launching pad for some of Broadway’s biggest hits. Roundabout Theatre Company has two shows currently running in their Off-Broadway space, the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, that we think you’ll enjoy:
If I Forget
In the final months before 9/11, liberal Jewish studies professor Michael Fischer has reunited with his two sisters to celebrate their father’s 75th birthday. Each deeply invested in their own version of family history, the siblings clash over everything from Michael’s controversial scholarly work to the mounting pressures of caring for an ailing parent. As destructive secrets and long-held resentments bubble to the surface, the three negotiate—with biting humor and razor-sharp insight—how much of the past they’re willing to sacrifice for a chance at a new beginning. If I Forget tells a powerful tale of a family and a culture at odds with itself.
From Steven Levenson, acclaimed writer of Dear Evan Hansen and Roundabout’s The Language of Trees, comes If I Forget, a sharply funny, unflinchingly honest new play about the stories we choose to believe, the compromises we can’t avoid and the hurt only our nearest and dearest can inflict.
In the video above, watch the cast of If I Forget, including TV’s Kate Walsh (Private Practice) and Tony nominees Larry Bryggman (Proof), Maria Dizzia (Orange is the New Black), and Jeremy Shamos (Clybourne Park).
If I Forget is playing at the Laura Pels Theatre through April 30, 2017.
On the Exhale
When a senseless act of violence changes her life forever, a liberal college professor (Tony Award® nominee Marin Ireland, reasons to be pretty) finds herself inexplicably drawn to the very weapon used to perpetrate the crime – and to the irresistible feeling of power that comes from holding life and death in her hands. Peering down the barrel of a uniquely American crisis, she begins to suspect that when it comes to gun violence, we’re all part of the problem.
Roundabout Underground presents On the Exhale, a provocative world premiere from Martin Zimmerman (Netflix’s Narcos), directed by Tony nominee Leigh Silverman (Well, Roundabout’s Violet). Staged with propulsive, heart-pounding intensity in Roundabout’s intimate Black Box Theatre, this grippingly immediate story draws you into the white-hot center of our country’s most divisive – and most urgent – debate.
In the video above, watch star Marin Ireland (Amazon’s Sneaky Pete) discuss On the Exhale.
On the Exhale is playing at Roundabout’s Black Box Theatre through April 2, 2017.
Group tickets start at $30 for If I Forget and $20 for On the Exhale for groups of 10+. To book your tickets today, call Your Broadway Genius at 877-943-2929.
Earlier this month, Newsday was taken over by School of Rock star Brandon Niederauer. The Long Island newspaper followed the 13-year-old (who has played the role of Zack since the show opened in 2015) for an entire day to see what it’s really like for a Broadway star who also happens to be a kid. Look through this fun feature and see how Brandon and his co-stars balance their homework and chores with “stickin’ it to the man” each night at the Winter Garden Theatre!
Want to take your group to see Brandon rock out on his guitar in School of Rock on Broadway? Tickets start at only $45 for groups of 15+, so call Your Broadway Genius at 877-943-2929 today for the best seats at the lowest prices.
One of the most talked-about new shows of the Broadway season, Come From Away, arrives on Broadway this spring! The breathtaking new musical is currently in previews at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre and is scheduled to open on March 12th. Come From Away tells the remarkable true story of how a small community, notable only for an international airport that was primarily used as a refueling station, came together after the events of September 11, 2001. In a heartbeat, 38 planes with 6,579 passengers were stranded in a remote town in Newfoundland. The locals opened their hearts and homes, hosting this international community of strangers–spurring unexpected camaraderie in extraordinary circumstances.
Much like the subjects of this unconventional musical, Come From Away has had quite the journey to the Great White Way, playing record-breaking engagements in San Diego, Seattle, Washington D.C., Toronto, and even Gander, Newfoundland for two special performances presented to the actual heroes whose actions inspired this incredible show.
To help student groups get the most out of this important and complex story, check out the Come From Away Study Guide. This guide is a fantastic resource on both the background of the specific events of the play, as well as the events of September 11 and the impact they had on the United States and the international community. The resource is the result of collaborative efforts between the TDF Education team, the education team at Seattle Repertory Theatre and the education team at La Jolla Playhouse as well NYC and D.C. educators. The Come From Away Study Guide is an extremely useful tool for teaching students about this difficult topic.
Student rates start at $45 for groups of 10+, so book your tickets now! For the best seats to Come From Away at the lowest prices, call 877-943-2929 to speak to a Genius today!

Legendary Broadway composer Andrew Lloyd Webber made history last week by becoming the first person in over 60 years to have four shows running on Broadway at the same time! Show number four, Sunset Boulevard, opened at the Palace Theatre on Thursday evening. This makes Lloyd Webber the first person to accomplish this feat since renowned writing duo Rodgers and Hammerstein in 1953, the only other time in Broadway history that this situation has occurred.
In this limited revival of the international sensation, Glenn Close reprises her Tony-winning performance as Norma Desmond, the tragic former movie star who struggles to move on from her once-illustrious career. Lloyd Webber’s other three shows currently running on Broadway are The Phantom of the Opera, the record-holding longest running show in Broadway history, which has been enchanting audiences at the Majestic Theatre since 1987; School of Rock, his latest Broadway smash, which opened last year at the Winter Garden Theatre; and the current revival of Cats, the former holder of the record for longest running show on Broadway, which opened last summer at the Neil Simon Theatre. In honor of this momentous occasion, Andrew Lloyd Webber (center) was found posing with characters from all four of his current Broadway shows on Thursday, as shown in the photo above.

Bandstand, the new American musical, begins previews at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theatre on March 31, with opening night set for April 26. Check out this teaser while you wait for this new, swingin’ musical to arrive on Broadway!
Bandstand brings the swing-fueled, against-all-odds story of singer/songwriter Donny Novitski and his band of mismatched fellow vets brilliantly to the stage.
When a national contest to find America’s next music sensation offers a chance at fame and Hollywood fortune, Donny must whip his boys into fighting shape. Teaming up with a beautiful young war widow as their singer, and playing for every voiceless underdog in a world that has left them behind, they will risk everything to redefine the meaning of victory and sing truth to power.
Directed and choreographed by two-time Tony Award® winner Andy Blankenbuehler (Hamilton, In the Heights), starring two-time Tony nominee Laura Osnes (Cinderella, Bonnie and Clyde), Broadway sensation Corey Cott (Newsies), and Tony winner Beth Leavel (The Drowsy Chaperone), and featuring an explosive original score, Bandstand is a truly American celebration of the men and women whose personal bravery defined a nation.
