Jason Robert Brown's beloved musical Songs For A New World returns to Manhattan for its first authorized NYC production since its debut in 1996. Says the author of this gripping revue, "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." A 14-member youth ensemble that reflects the changing faces of the 21st century joins the original four characters as they take the audience on a journey through the challenges that face every generation: what is it like to be afraid, to overcome that fear, to love someone, to lose someone, to create a new life, to rise to new heights. Songs For A New World has an exquisitely crafted score that will entertain you, enlighten you, and open your heart. It's a remarkable achievement from a remarkable artist, whose newest show 13, The Musical opens on Broadway this fall.
