|Songs for a New World
April 7-17 | 7:00 PM
From the writer and composer who created “The Last Five Years”—we proudly present Jason Robert Brown’s “Songs for a New World.”
Songs for a New World is 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. With a rousing score that blends elements of pop, gospel and jazz, featuring tight harmonies and darling vocals, Songs for a New World transports audiences from the deck of a Spanish sailing ship bound for a new land, to the ledge of a New York penthouse.
