MTD Musical: Songs For A New World

Songs for a New World is, according to composer Jason Robert Brown, “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.” With a rousing score that blends elements of pop, gospel and jazz, featuring tight harmonies and daring vocals, Songs for a New World transports its audience from the deck of a spanish sailing ship bound for a new land, to the ledge of a New York penthouse. Characters range from a young man in the Bronx who dreams of becoming a famous basketball player, to a forlorn and neglected Mrs. Claus lamenting as Christmas approaches. The show features a well crafted score that appeals to old and new generations alike as each character -- in their own way -- takes hold of that one moment and enters a new world. Admission: $10 adults, $8 Seniors, $6 students and Free to those with Marywood I.D.
