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
