Songs for a New World

by Jason Robert Brown

April 8 – May 3

A stunning song cycle/musical revue by Broadway wonder Jason Robert Brown (The Bridges of Madison County, Parade) loosely tells the story of people searching for a new beginning. 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. With a small, powerhouse cast and a exquisitely crafted score, Songs for a New World is a perfect way to bring the next generation into the theater.
