Songs for a New World

August 29 – September 7, 2014

This Jason Robert Brown musical has become a favorite among theater goers around the world. Originally written in 1995 this show quickly gained immense popularity and has been performed thousands of times globally. The show sits on the boundary between musical and song cyclebut it is neither; it is an abstract musical, a series of songs all connected by a theme: “the moment of decision.” The show employs five performers who do not literally play the same characters throughout the show but who do have consistently developing character arcs nonetheless. Composer Jason Robert Brown has said of his show, “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.

 Center Stage Presents Inland Valley Repertory Theatre Co. (IVRT)

JASON ROBERT BROWN’s show debut in 1995 and has been produced hundreds of times all over the world! Transporting the audience from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge 57 stories above Fifth Avenue to meet a startling array of characters ranging from a young man who has determined that basket-ball is his ticket out of the ghetto to a woman whose dream of marrying rich nabs her the man of her dreams and a soulless marriage. With a small, powerhouse cast and a driving, exquisitely crafted score running the gamut of today’s popular music,

SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD is a great way to understand today’s generation ….and where else in the theatre. Jason Robert Brown says, “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.”

Director, HOPE KAUFMAN Music Director, RONDA RUBIO Choreographer, KIM EBERHARDT
