    New York City Center goes Off-Broadway with Encores! Off-Center, a new musical theater series led by artistic director Jeanine Tesori. Off-Center features seminal Off-Broadway musicals filtered through the lens of today’s most innovative artists.

    In an era of Occupy Wall Street–style rebellion against corporate greed, Marc Blitzstein’s 1937 battle hymn to the proletariat feels remarkably fresh. Set against the backdrop of a steel strike and peopled with fat-cat capitalists, brutal policemen, heroic union organizers, and a warm-hearted prostitute, The Cradle Will Rock is a powerful political document, a funny, potent satire, and an extraordinary piece of theater history.
