Encores! Off-Center, “a summer theater highlight” (The New York Times), brings back groundbreaking musicals with innovative artists of today.
This program is currently on hiatus. We are grateful to the visionary leaders of Encores! Off-Center: Founding Artistic Director Jeanine Tesori (2013 – 2016), Artistic Director Michael Friedman (2017), and Artistic Director Anne Kauffman (2018 – 2020).
