It’s about one moment. It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice…or take a stand…or turn and go back. These are the stories and characters of today, the Songs for a New World.  

NU Theatre tops off its 57th season with a dynamic virtual production of Songs For A New World, by Jason Robert Brown, from May 6 – 9, directed by Terri Vaughan with Steve Braddock, Choreographed  by Terri Vaughan, and Music Directed by Dr. Bridget Moriarty. Brown transports his audience from the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship to a ledge, 57 stories above Fifth Avenue, in a contemporary song cycle that weaves a startling array of characters and history together, illuminating the timelessness of self-discovery.

The first musical from Tony Award winner, Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Bridges of Madison County), is a moving collection of powerful songs that examine life, love and the choices we make.

Caution: Some songs contain adult language.
