The Lobby Project, a series of free pre-show events presented in conjunction with New York City Center's Encores! Off-Center series, continues June 28 with 54 Below Meets 55 Above: Rare Jonathan Larson Works in Concert.

The 7:15 PM performance, presented in conjunction with the limited engagement of Jonathan Larson’s tick, tick… BOOM!, features Larson's rarely heard work.

Curated by Jennifer Tepper (programming director of the cabaret venue 54 Below), Larson's work is being sung by Broadway performers Nick Blaemire, Joe Iconis, Anne L. Nathan, Taylor Trensch and Alysha Umphress.

Encores! Off-Center, under the artistic direction of Jeanine Tesori, is City Center’s newest series, featuring landmark musicals that pushed creative boundaries when they were first produced. The season includes three shows: tick, tick… BOOM! (through June 28), Randy Newman’s Faust: The Concert (July 1) and Pump Boys and Dinettes (July 16–19).



In keeping with City Center’s founding mission to make the arts accessible to all, the majority of tickets are $25. The Lobby Project events take place 45 minutes before each curtain and are free for ticket holders.
