ABOUT MR. ROBERTS
Mister Roberts is the classic play based on the 1946 Thomas Heggen novel of the same name. The novel began as a collection of short stories about Heggen’s experiences aboard the cargos ships USS Virgo and USS Rotanin in the South Pacific during World War II. Mister Roberts is the recipient of five Tony Awards including Best Play and is still considered one of the most successful plays today with a total of 1,157 shows performed over a three year run on Broadway. The play was then adapted into the 1955 smash hit film starring legendary actors Henry Fonda as Lieutenant Roberts and James Cagney as Lt. Commander Morton.  Mister Roberts went on to be an Academy Award nominee for Best Picture and Jack Lemmon received the 1955 Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his work on the film.
