About English on Broadway

Roundabout brings English, by Sanaz Toossi, home to Broadway, after its world premiere co-production with Atlantic Theater Company. Knud Adams (Primary Trust) once again directs this Pulitzer Prize-winning play about the universal foibles of language and miscommunication. The comedy unfolds in an Iranian classroom where adult English learners practice for their proficiency exam. As they leapfrog through a linguistic playground, their wildly different dreams, frustrations, and secrets come to light. Can they overcome the limits of language to discover what they really want to say?

Resonant, Great writing, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if A riveting well-acted play, set in an English as a Foreign Language class in Iran, abt the concept of "home", identity, culture & language.

Don’t see it if uninterested in multicultural stories. Hard to hear at times but I am sure it will get better soon.

Intelligent, Funny, Absorbing

See it if This is a show about 4/5 character who all want to learn English. It's sincere. It's funny and emotional. It's about identity and change.

Don’t see it if This isn't a show about plot spectacle. You're not looking for a show that takes a close look at a few characters.
