The New York City Center production of Maurice Sendak and Carole King’s Really Rosie, directed by Leigh Silverman, officially opened August 2 as a part of the Encores! Off-Center season.

The musical follows a group of Brooklyn kids on a typical summer’s day. To pass the time, Rosie, the self-proclaimed sassiest kid on her block, decides to direct a movie based on the story of her life.

The production will run through August 5.
