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.
Starring David Hunter (Waitress, Kinky Boots), Rachel John (Hamilton), Cedric Neal (Motown The Musical), Rachel Tucker (Come From Away, Wicked), and Shem Omari James (Songs For a New World) this is the first musical from Tony Award winner, Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years, Parade, Bridges of Madison County). This moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices that we make.
