It's 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 are the stories and characters of today, the Songs for a New World. The first musical from Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown (13, The Last Five Years), this moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices that we make.
Brown transports his audience from jail cell to a ledge, 57 stories above Fifth Avenue, to meet a startling array of characters that range from a young man who has determined that basketball is his ticket out of the suburbs to a woman whose dream of marrying rich captures the man of her dreams... and a soulless marriage.
This small, powerhouse cast featuring Sophie Booth, Sancia West, Isaac Ledingham and PJ Willis perform an exquisitely crafted score that runs the gamut of today's popular music. With songs that run the whole gamut of the Christmas spirit, Songs for a New World is a great way to bring the next generation into the theatre this Christmas.
