This contemporary song cycle directed by Amy Jakiel is the first musical from Tony award-winning composer Jason Robert Brown. Fueled by a small, yet powerful cast led by Michele Marie Roberts, Brian Brown, and Steve Copps, Songs for a New World transports us throughout the last century with effortless ease and nothing but music to guide us. Full of stories that examine life, love, and the timelessness of self-discovery, this production is a joyful celebration of the stories we weave.
