Saturday March 7 – Saturday March 21, 2015
Written and composed by Jason Robert Brown, Songs for a New World is a distinctly modern piece of musical theater featuring songs all connected by one theme: “the moment of decision” when one’s world changes forever. Brown notes, “It’s about one moment. It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice, take a stand or turn around and go back.”
Directed by Meg Quin Dussault with musical director Shannon Manley, the show has four performers who span the centuries–from sailing on a ship in 1492 to modern day Manhattan. While not playing the same character, each performer has consistent character challenges and life changing moments. Songs for a New World is a guide to overcoming those moments and finding a path in this new world.
