Annual Gala

Spring Gala | Encores! Into the Woods

May 4, 2022 at 6pm

Join the celebration! Be the first to see the new Encores! production of Into the Woods and toast the cast and creative team at a festive benefit dinner at The Plaza Hotel following the opening night performance.

Funds raised for the Spring Gala allow City Center to continue to provide access to the performing arts by subsidizing education programs and affordable tickets throughout the year.


Starring Sara Bareilles, Christian Borle, Heather Headley, Ashley Park, and more to be announced, Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Tony Award-winning musical Into the Woods ushers in a new annual tradition at Encores! that celebrates an iconic American musical. These productions bring together Broadway’s brightest stars with a multi-generational group, including New York City public school students, to highlight the ways theater connects us across generations.

Directed by Encores! Artistic Director Lear deBessonet, Into the Woods features choreography by Jamal Sims and Encores! Music Director Rob Berman leading the spectacular Encores! Orchestra.

Gala packages on sale now starting at $2,500.
