Circle in the Square Theatre was founded in 1951 by Theodore Mann, Jose Quintero, Jason Wingreen, Aileen Cramer, Ed Mann, and Emily Stevens, and joined by Paul Libin in 1963. In 1972, Circle moved to its Broadway home on 50th Street – the first new Broadway theatre in fifty years. The complex includes a three- or four-sided main theatre auditorium with a maximum capacity of 680 seats, classrooms, rehearsal studios and administrative offices. In the early years, Circle in the Square Theatre offered some of America’s finest actors the chance to take on demanding roles in an atmosphere free of commercial pressure. Circle encouraged these actors to make bold choices and responded to their desire to explore plays that fell outside the popular repertory. The continuing commitment to the presentation of both old and new plays and musicals not normally produced on Broadway allows Circle in the Square audiences to see challenging material in an intimate setting unavailable to them elsewhere.
