Photo Coverage: SONGS OF A NEW WORLD in Toronto

Toronto audiences are getting another Jason Robert Brown musical this season, as Angelwalk Theatre presents Songs for a New World at the Toronto Centre for the Arts.  Toronto audiences have historically embraced MR. Brown's work, in fact this winter Studio 180's production of Parade was virtually sold out at every performance.

Songs for a New World opened on April 1st, 2011 at the Toronto Centre for the Arts and features Erica Peck, Denise Oucharek, Stewart Adam McKensy and Justin Bott in the four iconic lead roles.  The show is filled with wit, intelligence and enthusiasm for life's crazy possibilities.  "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."

Jason Robert Brown has been hailed as "one of Broadway's smartest and most sophisticated songwriters since Stephen Sondheim" by the Philadelphia Inquirer, and Songs for a New World is one of his most popular musicals, in addition to being his first show.  Popular songs include Stars and the Moon, I'm Not Afraid of Anything, Surabaya-Santa and Hear My Song.

Now Toronto's Jordan Bimm said of the show: "While the sweet and tender sentimentality of the now classic Stars And The Moon is a sure-bet tear-jerker, the upbeat and immediately catchy soulful groove of The Steam Train offers an empowering sense of fun. Songs is an emotional roller coaster, but you'll leave with a smile."

BWW is thrilled to bring its readers photos from the new production, currently on stage until April 23rd, 2011

Kelly Cameron Kelly Cameron's love affair with the theatre began when she was just five years old, on an outing to see the Original Canadian Cast of Les Miserables at the Royal Alexandra Theatre in Toronto. She instantly fell in love, and is honoured to be representing the Toronto contingent of BroadwayWorld as Senior Editor overseeing the GTA region.

Her writing career started almost by accident, though it has always been in her blood as her Mom was an English teacher who firmly believed in the importance of being able to turn a phrase. She also loved sharing her love of theatre with her students (and her children), and was a staunch supporter of the arts in Toronto.

When not at the theatre, you can usually find Kelly with a Starbucks in one hand and her BlackBerry in the other, tweeting, reading or doing something quirky and clumsy for the sake of getting that next big story.

She's incredibly grateful to the amazing Toronto theatre community who have embraced her with open arms, giving her the greatest gift a little redheaded theatre geek could ever ask for - getting to be a part of this vibrant arts and culture scene. She may have never had the skills to be on the stage, but is thankful every day she gets to write about the inspiring people who do.
