Roundabout’s out of League

Theater co. leaves trade org

The Roundabout Theater Company has pulled out of Broadway trade org the League of American Theaters & Producers.

“The league doesn’t serve the needs of a nonprofit theater operating on Broadway,” said RTC artistic director Todd Haimes. Roundabout operates two Broadway houses, the American Airlines Theater and Studio 54.

Lincoln Center Theater and the Manhattan Theater Club are Gotham’s two other nonprofit theaters with a presence on Broadway. They own, respectively, the Vivian Beaumont Theater and the Biltmore Theater. Both companies are members of the league and participate in its various marketing activities but do not negotiate their contracts with the org. Nonprofit theaters use the League of Resident Theaters Contract and not the commercial Production Contract.

Not all commercial producers on Broadway are members of the league. The Dodgers pulled out three years ago, and Disney never joined. Nederlander Prods. is a member but negotiates some of its contracts separately from the trade org.
