Goodman to round out Roundabout’s new plays

Consultant to 'develop new works,' commercial pieces

Legit producer Robyn Goodman is easing back into the not-for-profit sector without giving up her new commercial spurs.

Todd Haimes of Roundabout Theater Co. announced that Goodman, who recently made her Broadway debut as a lead producer with the play “Metamorphoses, has been made an artistic consultant with the legit org. Roundabout is currently represented on and Off Broadway with the revivals of “The Boys From Syracuse” and “All Over” by Edward Albee.

New play push

Goodman said her major responsibilities would be to “develop new works as well as commercial transfers” of legit projects. The company’s long-running production of “Cabaret” made the commercial switch shortly after its successful not-for-profit launch more than four years ago. Goodman’s appointment suggests that Roundabout, best known for its revivals, will be beefing up its production of new plays. Last season, it presented the Gotham debut of Heather McDonald’s “An Almost Holy Picture,” and its 2002-03 sked includes the world premiere of the musical “Spring Awakening” by Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater.

Indie footing

Goodman will continue working as an independent producer with her company Aged in Wood. In addition to “Metamorphoses,” she was a lead producer last season for the Off Broadway productions of “Bat Boy” and Jonathan Larson’s “Tick, Tick … Boom,” which goes on national tour in early 2003. And in collaboration with “Rent” producers Kevin McCollum and Jeffrey Seller, she holds the commercial option to the new musical “Avenue Q,” set to open at the Vineyard Theater next year.

Prior to her commercial stints, Goodman co-founded Second Stage with Carole Rothman in 1979.
