Tickets at Todd Haimes Theatre

The Todd Haimes Theatre was built in 1918 by producers (and brothers) Arch and Edgar Selwyn and was originally named The Selwyn Theatre. Like many other theaters, it fell victim to the economic woes of the Great Depression and became a movie house in the 1930s.

The venue was a movie theater for almost 70 years, until it was purchased by the Roundabout Theatre Company in the late 1990s. After an expensive overhaul, it reopened as The American Airlines Theatre in 2000. In January 2024, the theater was renamed in memory of Roundabout Theatre Company's longtime artistic director and chief executive Todd Haimes.

Story for True West

Broadway fireworks don’t get more combustible than this. Ethan Hawke and Paul Dano head the cast of Roundabout Theatre Company’s latest triumph, and the result is “a ripping revival of Sam Shepard’s masterwork” (The New York Times, Critic’s Pick). In this powerhouse new production—on Broadway through March 17 only—two of this generation’s hottest actors face off as estranged brothers in an empty California home, and the sparks truly fly.

The Times says, “Hawke delivers a faultless performance, probably his best ever onstage,” and The Wall Street Journal says, “everything Dano does is excitingly surprising.” Don’t miss director James Macdonald’s suspenseful, smoldering True West. “It’s as funny as it is serious, as entertaining as it is profound” (New York Stage Review).

Critics’ Reviews for True West

"As embodied by a brilliant Ethan Hawke and a tightly wired Paul Dano, sibling rivalry has seldom felt this ominous. Hawke is delivering a faultless performance, his best ever onstage. Director James Macdonald is a master at building suspense. Shepard’s wild West just got a lot scarier."

Ben Brantley, The New York Times

"A gradual, grinning descent towards chaos. It lurks and menaces. It goes for the kill. It’s funny and nasty, debauched yet dramatically laser-focused."

Sara Holdren, New York Magazine

"True West is rock and roll theater."
