A special benefit concert will be held to honor the memory of Roundabout Theatre Company’s late artistic director and CEO Todd Haimes. Veteran stage performer Kristin Chenoweth will headline the one-night event, titled “Kristin: An Evening with Friends for Todd,” on April 15, 2024, at 7:30 p.m., at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.

Haimes led Roundabout Theatre Company for 40 years, until his passing in April of 2023. The American Airlines Theatre, owned by the nonprofit, will be renamed for Haimes in 2024.

“Kristin: An Evening with Friends for Todd” will be directed and choreographed by Warren Carlyle, currently represented on Broadway by “Harmony.” The concert will feature additional guests who have appeared in Roundabout productions. 

Chenoweth starred in Roundabout’s 2006 revival of “The Apple Tree” and 2015 staging of “On the Twentieth Century,” the latter of which was choreographed by Carlyle. Carlyle also choreographed the company’s recent revivals of “She Loves Me” and “Kiss Me, Kate.”  

The evening will be presented by Roundabout, lead sponsor Bank of America, Susan and Ed Forst, Diane and Tom Tuft and Fran and Paul Turner. Proceeds will support Roundabout’s programs, including the initiative Education at Roundabout.
