Three Rivers Music Theatre Presents A NEW BRAIN

Three Rivers Music Theatre is proud to present the Fort Wayne premiere of the hit, Off-Broadway, musical A NEW BRAIN! This is the finale production of TRMT's thrilling second season, following their smash hit Cabaret at The Philmore on Broadway!

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 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 a ruthless kiddie-show host and a boyfriend who'd "rather be sailing". 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. The show was revived in 2015 at New York City Center Encores, and starred Jonathan Groff as Gordon, Ana Gasteyer as Mimi, and Aaron Lazar as Roger.

The all-star cast of A NEW BRAIN includes Billy Dawson (Gordon), Kat Hickey (Mimi), Debbie Moore (Lisa), Chrissy Weadick (Rhoda), Kibwe Cooper (Roger), James Stover (Mr. Bungee), Renee Gonzales (Waitress/Nancy), Albert Brownlee (Richard), Chandler Chastain (Minister), and Tyler Hanford (Dr. Berensteiner).

The creative team includes Andy Planck (Director), Brandon Porter (Music Director/Conductor), Holly Lofland (Assistant Director), Cody Steele (Stage Manager), Michelle Brady (Costume Designer), Lyssa Troemel (Props Designer), and Maddie Hickey (Production Assistant).
