The parking garage is kind of tucked away, so definitely pay close attention to your GPS directions. At $10, parking's a little pricey, but you're right across the plaza from the theatre entrance.

This was fabulous!! I knew that the music would be wonderful; anything written by Jason Robert Brown is always great, but I was surprised by the

Songs for a New World is a Los Angeles Times Critic’s Choice.


Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown

Directed by Jules Aaron

Songs for a New World does not tell one story; in fact, it tells a whole collection of stories. Says composer and Tony Award Winner Jason Robert Brown of this riveting musical, “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.” Audiences are transported from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge 57 stories above Fifth Avenue to meet a startling array of characters. These are the stories and characters of today, told with a driving, exquisitely crafted score running the gamut of today’s popular music.
