  Songs for a New World

by Jason Robert Brown


Songs for a New World is, according to composer Jason Robert Brown, “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.”

With a rousing score that blends elements of pop, gospel and jazz, featuring tight harmonies and darling vocals, Songs for a New World transports its audience from the deck of a spanish sailing ship bound for a new land, to the ledge of a New York penthouse. Characters range from a young man in the Bronx who dreams of becoming a famous basketball player, to a forlorn and neglected Mrs. Claus lamenting as Christmas approaches.

The show lies between musical and song cycle, but it is neither; it is an abstract musical, a series of songs all connected by a theme: "the moment of decision." The show has four performers who do not literally play the same characters throughout the show but who do have consistently developing character arcs nonetheless. 

Rated PG 13.

Winter Fest 2019 - Made with PosterMyWal

What would you do if you had all eternity?

"...this is an intimate family story of love, loss and the purpose and power of storytelling in the American folk tradition of Twain and Wilder." 

       -  Variety

"Tuck startles with its emotional resonance and theatrical force! A warm-spirited and piercingly touching musical!"

      - The New York Times

Eleven-year-old Winnie Foster yearns for a life of adventure beyond her white picket fence, but not until she becomes unexpectedly entwined with the Tuck Family does she get more than she could have imagined. When Winnie learns of the magic behind the Tuck's unending youth, she must fight to protect their secret from those who would do anything for a chance at eternal life. As her adventure unfolds, Winnie faces an extraordinary choice: return to her life, or continue with the Tucks on their infinite journey.

Based on the best-selling classic by Natalie Babbitt and adapted fot the stage by Claudia Shear and Tim Feder, featuring a soaring score from Chris Miller and Nathan Tysen.
