Biography

JEANINE TESORI
Creative Advisor
The Tony Award-winning composer of Fun Home, Violet, and Caroline, or Change, Jeanine Tesori joined City Center in 2013 as the founding artistic director of Encores! Off-Center. Tesori led the series for four seasons, producing acclaimed concert revivals of The Cradle Will Rock, Violet, tick, tick…BOOM!, A New Brain, Little Shop of Horrors, and Runaways, among others. She returned to the position in 2018 as a co-artistic director with Anne Kauffman, and now is a creative advisor for the series. “I joined City Center not just to produce shows, but to try and create a space for artists,” Tesori says. “I really love the building. Everyone here is on the precipice of a particular discovery—whether it’s their first time directing in such a big house or their first time starring in a musical.” Tesori produced City Center’s gala presentation of Sunday in the Park with George in 2016, which transferred to Broadway the following year.
