Paul Gemignani serves as musical director. The cast includes Lucine Amara, Christine Baranski, Philip Bosco, Victoria Clark, Michael McGrath, Donna Murphy, and JoAnne Worley.

New York City Center Encores! has, since 1994, celebrated the rarely-heard works of America's most important composers and lyricists. Conceived as "concert versions," each Encores! season gives three scores the chance to be heard as originally intended by their creators.
