Songs for a New World

Run Dates: April 30 – May 16, 2021

Musical-Comedy

Presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. www.mtishows.com

Composer Jason Robert Brown describes Songs for a New World 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.”

With a score that blends elements of pop, gospel and jazz, featuring tight harmonies and darling vocals, Songs for a New World transports its audience from the deck of a spanish sailing ship bound for a new land, to the ledge of a New York penthouse

STREAMING OPTIONS: Starting May 8 we will stream Songs for a New World to your home via ShowTix4U on Demand. When you rent the stream for $20, you have access to watch for 48 hours. Rent the stream as many times as you like during the week!
