Originally home to an order of Mecca Shriners, The New York City Center became city property in 1940 and was converted into a performing arts center. Underneath its unmistakable Moorish revival dome, the center houses a number of resident companies and is one of the city's most vibrant hubs of off-Broadway musicals, dance and theater.

A fresh new romantic comedy is set to land at the Manhatten Theatre Club this fall, with Tony-winning actor and Seinfeld star Jason Alexander starring.

Coming to him to help settle her latest spouse's affairs, the fireworks are ferocious, as she is determined to save as much cash as possible, much to Barry's blustering annoyance! Throw in his overbearing mother, contemporary politics and young love, and the laughs break through the roof!

Kelli O'Hara and Patrick Wilson star in this brand new concert staging of the beloved Lerner and Loewe tale of magic and romance in a mysterious village in the Scottish Highlands. Directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon (An American in Paris), this concert staging will revisit the musical that aside from a healthy appreciation of tartan, gave us beautiful ballet interludes and wonderful songs such as 'Almost Like Being in Love'

Hey, Look Me Over!

New York City Center Mainstage

February 7-11, 2018

Kicking off the 2018 season at The New York City Center in January, this natural progression of Jack Viertel's enduring 25-year musical review Encores celebrates the biggest tunes on Broadway that the original show have yet to perform and put their unique tongue-in-cheek spin on! Credited in part for helping revive the popularity of musicals such as Chicago, Wonderful Town, and Finian's Rainbow, this newest offering will feature tunes from the little-known musicals Mack & Mabel, Greenwillow, Wildcat and many, many more!

Grand Hotel

New York City Center Mainstage

March 21-25, 2018

The deliciously decadent musical that was based on Vicki Baum's 1928 novel Menschen im Hotel heads to the NY City Center as part of its 2018 season! First premiering im 1989, it was preceded by a famed pre-Code Hollywood movie starring Greta Garbo. Following the exploits amongst the guests of a glamorous Berlin hotel in the height of the Roaring Twenties, this story takes place over the course of a weekend. At once celebrating the pleasures of crossing paths with strangers and warning against haste, this musical drama was nominated for 12 Tony Awards, and won five including best direction and choreography for Tommy Tune.

Me and My Girl

New York City Center Mainstage

May 9-13, 2018

Head down to the old East End of London town, in this delightfully quirky musical comedy by Noel Gay, with a revised book by British satirist Stephen Fry. Not seen in New York for over 30 years, this charming walk down memory lane first premiered in London' West End in 1937, before being adapted to film in 1939, as The Lambeth Walk, after the famous dance. With two revivals, the most recent in 1984, it won two Olivier Awards and ran for an astonishing eight years in London.
