The Roundabout Theatre Company is a leading non-profit theatre company based in New York City. The company was founded in 1965 by Gene Feist and Elizabeth Owens and now operates five theatres, all in Manhattan: the American Airlines Theatre (for classic Broadway plays and musicals); Studio 54 (for Broadway musicals and special events); the Henry Miller Theatre (a recent acquisition also on Broadway and soon to be renamed the Stephen Sondheim Theater); the Off-Broadway Laura Pels Theatre (for new works by established playwrights); and the Roundabout Underground Black Box Theatre (for new work of emerging writers and directors). The latter two theatres are located in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (the former American Place Theatre) The Center was developed, with financial support from the Steinbergs, "to support its artistic mission of fostering emerging talent in playwriting, performance, and stagecraft." - Source: Wikipedia
