The Counter Off-Broadway Tickets On Sale Now

Take a seat at a small-town diner as new play The Counter opens at the Laura Pels Theatre. This funny and moving story about the everyday connections that have life-changing consequences is the latest play from Meghan Kennedy (Napoli, Brooklyn), and forms part of an exciting and diverse season for Roundabout Theatre Company’s Broadway and Off-Broadway venues this year.

About The Counter

Every morning at a small town’s local diner, a waitress refills one of her regulars’ coffee. As an unlikely friendship develops between customer and employee, he can’t help but keep coming back for more. But when he asks for a shocking favor, deeply hidden secrets on both sides come to light.

Funny, surprising and sensitive, The Counter is a moving portrait of the small everyday connections that can change our lives.
