True West, starring Ethan Hawke and Paul Dano, runs at American Airlines Theatre until March 27, 2019.

Roundabout Theatre Company presents a new Broadway production of Sam Shepard's Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-nominated drama True West, starring acclaimed screen and stage actors Ethan Hawke as “Lee” and Paul Dano as “Austin.”

Holed up in their mother’s California house, screenwriter Austin (Dano) and lowlife Lee (Hawke) wrestle with big issues — and each other. Order vs. chaos. Art vs. commerce. Typewriter vs. toaster...Shepard’s rip-roaring classic returns to Broadway, gleefully detonating our misguided myths of family, identity and the American Dream.


Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
