Trouble in Mind

This Show Is Closed

Roundabout Theatre Company presents the Broadway premiere of Alice Childress's Trouble in Mind.

Follow an experienced Black stage actress through rehearsals of a major Broadway production in Alice Childress's wry and moving look at racism, identity, and ego in the world of New York theatre. At the forefront of both the Civil Rights and feminist movements, the prescient Trouble in Mind opened to acclaim off-Broadway in 1955, and was announced to move to Broadway in a production that never came to be.

“Glorious to behold.” – Terry Teachout, The Wall Street Journal

“The play of the moment.” – Jesse Green, The New York Times (Critic’s Pick)

“A triumphant Broadway debut.” – David Cote, The Observer

“It will take your breath away.” – Mark Kennedy, Associated Press
