Road Show

Encores! Off-Center today announced casting for Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman's Road Show, the final production of the 2019 Encores! Off-Center series and conclusion of the City Center 75th Anniversary Season. The show will run July 24-27.

Directed and choreographed by Will Davis, with music direction by James Moore, Road Show tells the somewhat true story of the Mizner brothers who inherit a small fortune at the turn of the 20th Century and set out to grab their piece of the American Dream in a country where anything seems possible. The production will star Chuck Cooper (Papa Mizner), Raúl Esparza (Wilson Mizner), Jin Ha (Hollis Bessemer), Mary Beth Peil (Mama Mizner), and Brandon Uranowitz (Addison Mizner).

The ensemble includes Brandon Contreras, Rheaume Crenshaw, Daniel Edwards, Marina Kondo, Jay Lusteck, Liz McCartney, Matt Moisey, Shereen Pimentel, Sharone Sayegh, and Vishal Vaidya.

The Lobby Project, a series of free, pre-performance events will once again feature an investigative theater performance based on the themes of each Off-Center production created by Artists-in-Residence The Civilians.

Following the matinee on Saturday, July 27, members of the cast and creative team will participate in a talkback on stage.

In keeping with City Center's founding mission to make the arts accessible to all New Yorkers, many Off-Center tickets are $25. Tickets can be purchased online at NYCityCenter.org, by calling 212.581.1212, or in person at the City Center Box Office (131 West 55th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues).
