NightBlue Performing Arts Company to Present Jason Robert Brown's SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD, 3/1-30
NightBlue Performing Arts Company (RENT, AVENUE Q, Monty Python's SPAMALOT!) has announced it's upcoming production of Jason Robert Brown's "Songs for a New World"
At age twenty-five, songwriter Jason Robert Brown pulled together sixteen of the songs he had written for various projects (shows, cabaret, concerts) and director Daisy Prince found a common theme to make a show of the pieces. The theme is the moment of decision, the point at which you transition from the old to the new. The change may be geographical, emotional, professional or marital but things are different than they were before. The result is neither musical play nor revue, it is closer to a theatrical song cycle, a very theatrical song cycle.
Brown writes intensely personal, highly dramatic songs. They range from country-ish story songs to gospel tinged wails and from pop colored romps to solo pieces of either concentrated personal revelation or slightly off beat comedy. Each song is musically distinctive and dramatically effective.
