Show Summary

Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown
Originally produced by the WPA Theatre, New York City, 1995 (Kyle Renick, Artistic Director)
Original Orchestration by Brian Basterman and Jason Robert Brown

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), is a moving collection of powerful songs that examines life, love and the choices that we make. 

With a powerhouse cast and a driving, exquisitely crafted score that runs the gamut of today’s music, this is a celebration of life and music for the whole family.
