Off-Center presentation of the 2013 season, playing for five performances through July 27. BroadwayWorld brings you exclusive photos from opening night champagne reception below!

The show is directed and choreographed by Kathleen Marshall, with music direction by Chris Fenwick.Jeanine Tesori is the Encores! Off-Center artistic director. In keeping with City Center's founding mission to make the arts accessible to all and to attract younger audiences, the majority of tickets are $25.

I'm Getting My Act Together and Taking It on the Road, with book and lyrics by Gretchen Cryer and musicby Nancy Ford, created a sensation when it premiered in the late 1970s. In it, a former pop star ditches the romantic songs of her past and attempts a comeback by performing personal songs that reflect women's changing roles and attitudes. The show stoked the fires of feminism, not only with its joyous rock score proclaiming empowerment for women, but because of its female songwriting team-a rarity in musical theater then and now.
