Songs for a New World by Jason Robert Brown, directed by Dr. Joy Powell
It’s about one moment. It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice or take a stand or turn around and go back. This moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices that we make. These are the stories and characters of today, the Songs for a New World.
