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.

These are the stories and characters of today, told with a driving, exquisitely crafted score running the gamut of today’s popular music.
