About the Show:  Jason Robert Brown (author/composer/lyricist) 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.” These are the stories and characters of today, the SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD.

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 ranging from a young man who has determined that basket-ball 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.

With a small, powerhouse multi-ethnic cast and a driving, exquisitely crafted score running the gamut of today’s popular music, SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD is a great way to bring the next generation into the theatre.
