ROOM is written and adapted for the stage by Emma Donoghue, based on her 2010 best-selling novel which she also adapted into the award-winning 2015 film. The production, featuring songs and music by Scottish songwriters Kathryn Joseph and Cora Bissett and directed by Ms. Bissett, opens Monday, April 17, 2023 on Broadway at The Shubert Organization‘s brilliantly restored James Earl Jones Theatre (138 West 48th Street), with previews beginning on April 3, 2023. The limited engagement will run through September 17, 2023.
ROOM comes to Broadway following its critically acclaimed 2017 world premiere at Theatre Royal Stratford East, London, UK, and productions at The Abbey Theatre in Dublin, Ireland; The National Theatre of Scotland; the Grand Theatre in London, Ontario; and the Princess of Wales Theatre in Toronto, Ontario.
Kidnapped as a teenage girl, Ma (Adrienne Warren) has been locked for seven years inside a purpose-built Room in her captor’s garden. Her five-year-old son, Jack, has no concept of the world outside and happily exists inside Room with the help of Ma’s games and his vivid imagination where objects like Rug, Lamp and TV are his only friends. But for Ma the time has come to escape and face their biggest challenge to date: the world outside Room.
Irish Canadian author and playwright Emma Donoghue’s 2010 novel Room sold close to three million copies and was shortlisted for the UK’s prestigious Booker Prize and Orange Prize for Fiction. Donoghue also wrote the screenplay for the critically acclaimed 2015 film adaptation, for which she received Academy Award, Golden Globe, and BAFTA nominations for Adapted Screenplay, and for which she won the Evening Standard Award for Best Screenplay.
Donoghue was approached by Scottish director, playwright, and musician Cora Bissett to adapt Room for the stage. Donoghue was excited to explore the inherent theatricality in the story of a mother and son who share stories, songs, hope and joy to cope with their desperate situation. Bissett directs and co-wrote the show’s songs with fellow Scottish singer/songwriter Kathryn Joseph.
The production features scenic and costume design by Lily Arnold, lighting design by Bonnie Beecher, sound design by Justin Ellington and projection design by Andrzej Goulding. Choreography/Movement is by Galen Hooks. Orchestrations and arrangements are by Roddy Hart and Tommy Reilly. Music Director is Greg Kenna. Casting is by Jim Carnahan Casting.
ROOM is produced by Sam Julyan, James Yeoburn, ShowTown Productions and Hunter Arnold. ShowTown Theatricals serves as general managers.
Adrienne Warren‘s (Ma) talent as a singer, actress, and dancer has established her as a dynamic triple threat. Warren is perhaps most well known for her Tony Award-winning performance as Tina Turner in Broadway’s Tina: The Tina Turner Musical. Warren originated the role in numerous workshops of the show, working together with Tina Turner herself to embody the titular role. Warren transferred the role to Broadway following the 2018 West End production, for which she earned 2019 Olivier, Evening Standard and Joe Allen Award nominations.

In addition to the Tony Award, she also received a Chita Rivera nomination and the Drama Desk, Antonyo, and Outer Critics Circle Awards for her iconic performance. Warren can currently be seen in TriStar Pictures’ The Woman King. The film is directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood and also stars Viola Davis, Thuso Mbedu, Lashana Lynch, and John Boyega. It is a historical epic inspired by true events that took place in the Kingdom of Dahomey, one of the most powerful states in Africa in the 18th and 19th centuries. Most recently, Warren starred as Mamie Till-Mobley in the six-episode limited series for ABC entitled “Women of the Movement.” The series, created/written by Marissa Jo Cerar and produced by Jay-Z, Will Smith, and Aaron Kaplan, premiered on January 6, 2022. The series centers on Mamie Till-Mobley, who devoted her life to seeking justice for her son Emmett Till. It was also recently announced that Warren signed a one-year development deal with Aaron Kaplan‘s Kapital Entertainment, which produced “Women of the Movement.” Under the pact, Warren will collaborate exclusively with Kapital on the development of ongoing and limited series. Warren previously earned a Tony nomination for her performance as Gertrude Saunders/Florence Mills in the Broadway production of Shuffle Along opposite Audra McDonald. In addition to her Tony nomination, she was also nominated for a Chita Rivera Award (formerly Fred & Adele Astaire Award). Warren made her Broadway debut in 2012 in Bring It On: The Musical. She previously appeared onstage in The Wiz (Encores! City Center) and Dreamgirls (NAACP Theatre Award nomination, The Apollo). She made her Carnegie Hall debut in 2017 with the New York Pops and continues to perform around the world. Her television and film credits include “Paws & Fury: The Legend of Hank,” “Helpsters,” “Quantico,” “Black Box,” “Blue Bloods” and “Orange is the New Black.” Upcoming, she can be seen in the highly anticipated Netflix feature film, Rustin. Warren is also a co-founder of the Broadway Advocacy Coalition (BAC), which unites artists, experts, students, and community leaders to use storytelling and artistry to combat systemic racism. BAC received a special Tony Award in 2021. She is a graduate of Marymount Manhattan College and the Governor’s School for the Arts in Norfolk, Virginia. Warren’s voice can also be heard as the iconic spokesperson for Maybelline Cosmetics. Upcoming, she will star as Benny in Hulu’s highly anticipated series, “Black Cake,” based on the best-selling book by Charmaine Wilkerson. This marks a reunion for Warren with Cerar, Kapital Entertainment, and Disney following their collaboration on “Women of the Movement.”
