The neighborhood is a bit off putting, but don't let it stop you; the theater itself was a complete surprise on the insider, nicely done, and with good seats. The parking is a bit tricky, so allow a little time to find a space. We had an easy enough time finding one around the corner.

Quotes & Highlights

“The stars of the show were all wonderfully talented … While they all sang with energy and professionalism,  I especially liked AnnaLisa [Erickson,] whose performance reminded me somewhat of Bette Midler.” -LA Splash
A small cast… and a small but dynamic band, led by Director and DOMA Theatre Company cofounder Marco Gomez, have done an excellent job of presenting Brown’s captivating music." -Examiner


Soaring melodies and irresistible rhythms mark this collection of story-songs by composer Jason Robert Brown ( 13, Parade). Sixteen driving, exquisitely crafted songs tell sixteen unique stories peopled by characters of today. Songs for a New World chronicles the lives of four characters each who have hit a brick wall and who are forced to make major life changing decisions, take a stand on the conflicts they face in their personal lives or turn around and go back. Throughout the narratives chronicled in this song cycle musical, each character gains deeper insight into human emotion, fear, love, anger and hope for a better tomorrow.

This production contains fog and haze.
