Songs For a New World

Songs For a New World was originally conceived in the mid-1990′s as a sort of ‘theatrical cabaret’ to showcase the work of Jason Robert Brown. Brown describes the show as being “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 moments range from the whimsical (Mrs. Santa Claus considering whether she should leave her marriage) to the powerful (a Christopher Columbus crewmate standing on the bow and looking out toward the new world).
