All hands on deck! New York City Center has announced additional casting for Encores! Titanic, the final production of the 30th Encores! series. A centerpiece of City Center’s 80th Season at the Center of the Arts, the productions of Once Upon a Mattress, Jelly’s Last Jam, and Titanic are being presented in special two-week runs, celebrating 30 years of the Tony-honored series.
