City Center goes Off-Broadway with Encores! Off-Center, a musical theater series led by artistic director Jeanine Tesori (composer of Fun Home, Violet, and Shrek). Each summer, the series presents three landmark Off-Broadway musicals filtered through the lens of today’s most innovative artists.
Since its July 2013 debut, Off-Center has garnered both popular and critical acclaim; its second production, Violet, transferred to Broadway and received four Tony nominations including Best Revival of a Musical.
“Encores! Off-Center, under the dazzling artistic direction of Jeanine Tesori, has become my favorite new arts institution…with passionately chosen, wonderfully cast and nurtured productions.” – Linda Winer, Newsday
The 2015 line-up will be announced soon… stay tuned!
Performance Schedule: Wed - Thu 7:30pm, Fri 8pm, Sat 2pm & 8pm
Presented in tandem with Encores! Off-Center productions, The Lobby Project is a series of free performances, conversations and readings by groundbreaking artists, authors, and performers. The events place each musical in the context of its legacy, and provide insights into the work the audience is about to experience. Last summer’s Lobby Project events included a jam with the original cast of Pump Boys and Dinettes, a conversation with Jonathan Larson’s family about the unabashedly autobiographical tick, tick…BOOM!, and an evening of Sunday in the Park with George remixes attended by Stephen Sondheim. Open to ticket holders only.
