Off-Center production of William Finn and James Lapine's A New Brain, running through June 27, 2015. The production is directed by James Lapine, with choreography by Josh Prince. BroadwayWorld brings photos from the opening night curtain call below!

A New Brain, inspired by William Finn's personal experiences, is a medical tragedy seen through the iris of a Looney Tunes short. After struggling composer Gordon Michael Schwinn (Jonathan Groff) collapses face-first into a plate of spaghetti, he is diagnosed with a brain tumor and is forced to come to terms with his creative ambitions and the lovable screw-ups in his life: an overbearing mother (Ana Gasteyer), a ruthless kiddie-show host (Dan Fogler), and a boyfriend who'd "rather be sailing" (Aaron Lazar). The musical opened at Lincoln Center Theater on June 18, 1998 and ran for 78 performances, winning the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical.

A New Brain is the opening production of New York City Center's acclaimed Encores! Off-Center series, which is returning for a third season of landmark Off-Broadway musicals. A New Brain will be followed by Little Shop of Horrors, starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Ellen Greene and Taran Killam, playing for three performances on July 1 and 2.Andrew Lippa's The Wild Party, starring Sutton Foster, wraps up the season, playing July 15-18. Jeanine Tesori is the Artistic Director of Encores! Off-Center and Chris Fenwick is Music Director.
