Applause, Juno and No, No Nanette will be the three shows produced next year when the The New York City Center's 15th Anniversary Encores! season is presented. Stars Christine Ebersole, Rosie O' Donnell and Beth Leavel will be on board for the season , which starts up next February.

Ms. Ebersole will lend her star presence to Applause (Feb. 7-10). The 1970 musical version starred Lauren Bacall. It's based on the film All About Eve, with music by Charles Strouse, lyrics by Lee Adams and book by Betty Comden and Adolph Green. Ebersole is currently in Grey Gardens, which closes this weekend.

The second Encores! production will be Juno (March 27-30). The Joseph Stein and Marc Blitzstein 1959 musical is based on Sean O' Casey's Juno and the Paycock. The show will be directed by Garry Hynes.

The final Encores! show will be No, No, Nanette (May 8-12). This production of the show will use the 1971 revival version, which featured a reconception by Busby Berkeley and Burt Shevelove. The original music is by Vincent Youmans and lyrics by Irving Caesar and Otto Harbach. No,No, Nanette originally appeared on Broadway in 1925. Ms O'Donnell and Ms. Leavel will star. Walter Bobbie will direct.
