"STORIES OF PASSION, STORIES OF FRIENDSHIP, AND TALES OF HOW ROMANCE SURVIVES"

FROM THE TONY-WINNING WRITERS OF FALSETTOS AND SPELLING BEE!

A timely revival of the Finn & Lapine show about second chances and the urgency of art, Celebration Theatre brings us into the world of this queer musical of “captivating eccentricity” (New York Times) with an intimate experience of pathos, humor, and just a little bit of magic—to bring us back to life.

Composer Gordon Schwinn collapses into their lunch and awakes in the hospital, surrounded by their lover, mother, co-worker, doctor, and nurses. Coming face to face with their own mortality, Gordon sees their greatest fear: will they die with their greatest songs still unwritten? A New Brain reminds us that the power of music, love, and the creation of art can never be lost.

With a gender-expansive casting vision from Celebration and director Khanisha Foster, thoughtfully imbued into a buoyant score and “fascinating story” (New York Post) from the Tony Award-winning authors of Falsettos and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, audiences have the unique opportunity to see A New Brain in Los Angeles as it has never been done before.

F E A T U R I N G: Amanda Kruger (they/them), Yassi Noubahar (she/her), Richardson Cisneros-Jones (he/him), Gina Torrecilla (she/her), Ryan O'Connor (he/they), Whitney Avalon (she/her), Sadé Ayodele (she/her), Mitchell Johnson (he/they), Jason Ryan (he/him), and Gabi Van Horn (she/her).
