"APOLOGIA POSES EXCITING AND ENDURINGLY RELEVANT QUESTIONS about the price for women of achieving and sustaining professional success in a male-dominated world.” —Ben Brantley, The New York Times
“Stockard is RAZOR-SHARP AND IMMENSELY ENTERTAINING. Hugh Dancy is EXCELLENT” – Steven Suskin, New York Stage Review
Limited engagement Off-Broadway at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre
Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director/CEO) will conclude the Off-Broadway premiere of APOLOGIA, by Alexi Kaye Campbell, with direction by Daniel Aukin, on Sunday, December 16.
The cast includes Stockard Channing as “Kristin,” Hugh Dancy as “Peter” and “Simon,” Megalyn Echikunwoke as “Claire,” Talene Monahon as “Trudi,” and John Tillinger as “Hugh.”
At the time of closing, Apologia will have played 19 preview performances and 70 regular performances. Previews began September 27, 2018 and opened officially on October 16, 2018 at the Laura Pels Theatre in the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre (111 West 46th Street).
Direct from London, Alexi Kaye Campbell’s biting play makes its New York debut with the “Magnificent” (The Independent) Stockard Channing in a powerhouse performance as a woman facing the repercussions of her past. You do not mess with Kristin Miller (Channing). In the 1960s, she was a radical activist and political protester. Now a celebrated art historian, the publication of her memoir threatens to split her family apart. But Kristin has never been one to shy away from a fight. APOLOGIA is a passionate, human and humorous clash of generations and beliefs—a lively look at yesterday’s rebels living in today’s reality.
The creative team for Apologia includes Dane Laffrey (Scenic Design), Anita Yavich (Costume Design), Bradley King (Lighting Design), Ryan Rumery (Original Compositions & Sound Design) and Ben Furey (Dialect Coach).

The Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre opened in March 2004 with an acclaimed premiere of Lynn Nottage’s Intimate Apparel starring Viola Davis, directed by Dan Sullivan. In the ten years since that landmark production, the center has expanded beyond the Laura Pels Theatre to include the Black Box Theatre and now a new education center. The Steinberg Center continues to reflect Roundabout’s commitment to produce new works by established and emerging writers as well as revivals of classic plays. This state-of-the-art off-Broadway theatre and education complex is made possible by a major gift from The Harold and Mimi Steinberg Charitable Trust. The Trust was created in 1986 by Harold Steinberg to promote and advance American Theatre as a vital part of our culture by supporting playwrights, encouraging the development and production of new work, and providing financial assistance to not-for-profit theatre companies across the country. Since its inception, the Trust has awarded over $70 million to more than 125 theatre organizations.
Roundabout Theatre Company celebrates the power of theatre by spotlighting classics from the past, cultivating new works of the present, and educating minds for the future. A not-for-profit company, Roundabout fulfills that mission by producing familiar and lesser-known plays and musicals; discovering and supporting talented playwrights; reducing the barriers that can inhibit theatergoing; collaborating with a diverse team of artists; building educational experiences; and archiving over five decades of production history.
Roundabout Theatre Company presents a variety of plays, musicals and new works on its five stages: Broadway’s American Airlines Theatre, Studio 54 and Stephen Sondheim Theatre, and Off-Broadway’s Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre, which houses the Laura Pels Theatre and Black Box Theatre.
American Airlines is the official airline of Roundabout Theatre Company. Roundabout productions are supported, in part, with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
Roundabout continues its 2018-19 Broadway season with True West by Sam Shepard, directed by James Macdonald, starring Ethan Hawke and Paul Dano; Kiss Me, Kate, directed by Scott Ellis, starring Kelli O’Hara, Will Chase and Corbin Bleu, and Arthur Miller’s All My Sons starring Annette Bening and Tracy Letts, directed by Gregory Mosher.
