Songs For A New World

Masks are mandatory at The Unicorn Theatre.

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 (Parade, Bridges of Madison County), this moving collection of songs examines life, love and the choices that we make.

With a small, powerhouse, multi-ethnic cast and a driving, exquisitely crafted score that runs the gamut of today’s popular music, Songs for a New World brings us face to face with those moments in life when everything seems perfect and then goes sideways.  Most importantly, however, it’s about surviving those moments. It’s about the way we regroup and thrive under a new set of circumstances – a new world – even against seemingly overwhelming odds.
