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.
Violet, Jeanine Tesori’s first musical, was one of the most acclaimed off-Broadway shows of the 1990s. Based on the short story “The Ugliest Pilgrim” by Doris Betts, the show follows a young woman who embarks on a religious pilgrimage in hopes of being healed of her disfiguring scar. This one-night-only concert starring Sutton Foster will showcase a gorgeous, energetic score filled with gospel, country, rock, rhythm and blues.
