SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD
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. The show lies between musical and song cycle, but it is neither; it is an abstract musical, a series of songs all connected by a theme. As composer Brown says, "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."

From the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to the ledge of a New York penthouse we 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. Brown's supercharged, well crafted score appeals to old and new generations alike as each character - in their own way - takes hold of that one moment and enters a new world.
