Songs for a New World

October 29 - Nov 13, 2022

It's about one moment. It's about hitting the wall and having to make a choice... or take a stand... or turn around and go back. These are the stories and characters of today, the Songs for a New World. The first musical from Tony Award winner, Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Bridges of Madison County), this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices that we make.

Brown transports his audience from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge, 57 stories above Fifth Avenue, to meet a startling array of characters that range from a young man who has determined that basketball is his ticket out of the ghetto to a woman whose dream of marrying rich nabs her the man of her dreams... and a soulless marriage. Rated PG-13 for adult themes and some profanity.

Here's what our audience says about our production:

“What an amazing cast of excellent singers! The production was nearly flawless”

“Powerful and inspiring ensemble musical that explores the human experience and its complexity”

“Amazing! Very eclectic!”

“Unbelievably MASTERFUL vocals, really well done”

“It was an outstanding performance”

"The production was very entertaining, funny, and touching"
