Washington Performing Arts deeply values its partnerships with local organizations and other arts institutions. Through events in myriad performance venues and neighborhoods, Washington Performing Arts engages international visiting artists in community programs and introduces local artists to wider audiences.

Founded in 1965 and based in New York City, Roundabout Theatre Company (Roundabout) has grown to become one of the country’s largest nonprofit theatrical institutions. Roundabout operates three venues on Broadway— American Airlines Theatre, Stephen Sondheim Theatre, and the historic Studio 54—and two venues off-Broadway—Laura Pels Theatre and Roundabout Underground Black Box Theatre, which are housed in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre.
With a mission to celebrate the power of theatre by spotlighting classics from the past, cultivating new works of the present, and educating minds for the future, Roundabout presents a wide variety of familiar and lesser-known productions, including musicals, revivals of classic plays, and cutting-edge new works. The organization is highly respected for its innovative and high-quality productions and has received numerous awards in its 56-year history, including 38 Tony Awards, 73 Outer Critics Circle Awards, 14 Obie Awards, 5 Olivier Awards, and 14 AUDELCO Awards, which are awarded annually to recognize and honor excellence in Black Theatre.
Addressing social justice is a key cornerstone of Roundabout’s values. The organization announced a five-year strategic plan in September 2021 with the intention of addressing equity, diversity, inclusion, and anti-racism (EDI/AR) in its work, workplaces, and community to create a theatre company that is more equitable and inclusive. This strategic plan lists a series of EDI/AR targets to be achieved within the next five years, which include growing the percentage of racial representation in the stories it presents, creative teams it hires, staff in its offices, audiences it welcomes, and board leadership it appoints.
Roundabout has received national recognition for its educational programs. The organization has established numerous longstanding partnerships with schools throughout the five boroughs of New York City, creating customized residencies, free afterschool programs, and on-site experiences for students. The Roundabout Youth Ensemble is a program for New York City public high school students that uses Roundabout’s production model to explore the theatrical production process.
Roundabout is committed to removing all physical, cultural, or financial barriers to make theatre accessible and affordable to all people regardless of their background. The organization has introduced several special ticket programs and audience development initiatives that allow people to see productions at significantly reduced prices. These include Access Roundabout, which allocates more than 42,000 affordable tickets to theatregoers annually; Hiptix, which provides $30 tickets to all shows for theatregoers ages 18 to 40; Hiptix High, which provides $10 tickets to all shows for high school students ages 14 to 18; Access 10, which offers a limited quantity of $10 tickets for preview performances; and Blue Star Families, where United States military families and veterans receive a 40 percent discount on tickets.
Engaging deeply with audiences and communities is central to Roundabout’s mission. Theatre Plus is a series of innovative programs that enhances the theatre-going experience for audience members. It includes talks led by teaching artists, casts, and crews. To deepen audience engagement, Roundabout hosts 20-minute post-performance conversations between audience members to share their thoughts and engage in lively discussions.
Roundabout is governed by a 45-member board of trustees, co-led by Thomas E. Tuft and Katheryn Patterson Kempner. Artistic Director and CEO Todd Haimes leads a staff of 175 people. Due to the pandemic, Roundabout’s theatre venues and operations were shut down on March 12, 2020. The last full season of operations was the fiscal year ended August 31, 2019. For the 2019 fiscal year, Roundabout reported total revenue of $64.9 million, with $39.3 million from program services. Total expenses were $67.8 million. As comparison, for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2020, Roundabout reported total revenue of $37 million, with $18.5 million from program services and total expenses of $49.1 million.
