Songs For A New World is the first musical created by acclaimed composer Jason Robert Brown, and examines the difficult choices we all face in the moments when our lives suddenly change, and how we survive and overcome in the face of that momentous change. With a stunning score that combines elements of Broadway, gospel, jazz, and R&B, Songs For A New World presents the stories of a diverse array of characters all in the midst of their own moment of decision - contending with an unexpected pregnancy, escaping an unhappy marriage, or even fleeing religious persecution. As our country and our world attempt to grapple with a deadly pandemic, a climate crisis, racial injustice, and political upheaval, this powerful and hopeful exploration of how it feels to stand on the precipice of a new world feels more resonant than ever.
