Brigadoon is coming home. We’re thrilled to announce that Steven Pasquale, Kelli O’Hara, and Robert Fairchild will star in Lerner & Loewe’s transcendent romantic fantasy about the past, the present, and what it means to (almost) be in love. City Center’s concert production of Brigadoon will run from November 15-19, 2017, with direction and choreography by Christopher Wheeldon.

The November 15 performance of Brigadoon will be City Center’s annual Gala, honoring Tony Award-winning Broadway producer Stacey Mindich. Funds raised at all six benefit performances will allow City Center to make the best in the performing arts accessible to the widest possible audience by subsidizing affordable tickets throughout the year.

This summer, City Center’s acclaimed Encores! Off-Center series will return with concert revivals of Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s Assassins (July 12-15), Kirsten ChildsThe Bubbly Black Girl Sheds Her Chameleon Skin (July 26-27), and Carole King and Maurice Sendak’s Really Rosie (August 2-5). We asked incoming Off-Center artistic director Michael Friedman to share a few thoughts about why these musicals matter.

For the last four years, as a happy audience member at Encores! Off-Center, I couldn’t wait to find out what unexpected delights would come each season. What unmissable performance, what glorious score? Off-Center, City Center’s summer series of landmark Off-Broadway musicals, has grown from a brilliant idea to an essential institution, a program as generous, ferocious, surprising, beautiful, and brilliant as its first artistic director, Jeanine Tesori. Jeanine, like everyone who brought this program to life, believes in the musical as one of the central American art forms, and one that encompasses a much larger, more inclusive body of work than we usually remember.

Casting announced for the Encores! production of The New Yorkers

We’re delighted to announce the cast of the Encores! production of The New Yorkers, the madcap Prohibition musical that introduced such Cole Porter standards as “Love for Sale” and “I Happen to Like New York.” Virtually unseen since its 1930 premiere, the show centers on featherbrained socialite Alice Wentworth (Olivier Award nominee Scarlett Strallen), whose bootlegger beau Al Spanish (Tam Mutu, Doctor Zhivago) leads her on a madcap romp from Park Avenue to Sing Sing and back again. Along the way, the couple encounters a parade of Depression-era archetypes: the vaudevillian Jimmie Deegan (three-time Tony Award nominee Kevin Chamberlin), the gangster Feet McGeegan (Arnie Burton, The 39 Steps), and a lady of the evening (Cyrille Aimée, A Bed and A Chair).

We’re delighted to announce casting for the Encores! production of Big River, Roger Miller’s Tony Award-winning musical about friendship, freedom, and the untamed Mississippi. Fresh off his Theatre World Award-winning turn as Arpad in She Loves Me, Nicholas Barasch will make his Encores! debut as the scrappy, restless dreamer Huckleberry Finn, who flees “sivilization” by way of a makeshift raft on the Mississippi River. His copilot: the runaway slave Jim (The Color Purple’s Kyle Scatliffe, also making his Encores! debut). Along the way, they encounter 1840s America in all its beauty and savagery—as epitomized by the mourning innocent Mary Jane Wilkes (Lauren Worsham) and the deliciously seedy theatricals known as the Duke (Christopher Sieber) and the King (Tony Sheldon).
