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.

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.
Tickets for Bandstand start at $45 for groups of 10+, so book now with Your Broadway Genius. Call 877-943-2929 and speak to a Genius today!

Based on T. S. Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, the show is set among a larger-than-life junkyard playground and is alive with feline characters who’ve come out to play on one special night of the year—the night of the “Jellicle Ball.” One by one they tell their stories for the amusement of their wise and benevolent leader, who must choose one of the Cats to ascend to “The Heaviside Layer” and be reborn into a whole new life.
