A first look at rehearsals for Songs for a New World at New York City Center starring Shoshana Bean! This production of Jason Robert Brown's first musical work also stars Colin Donnell, Mykal Kilgore, and Solea Pfeiffer.
For five performances only, the first musical from three-time Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown returns to New York as part of our Encores! Off-Center 2018 season. Songs for a New World (1995) is a collection of powerful songs examining life, love, and the choices ordinary people make when faced with extraordinary moments.
It has quickly become one of summer’s hottest tickets, and for good reason: Encores! Off-Center brings groundbreaking Off-Broadway musicals back to life in whirlwind four-day revivals starring today’s most innovative artists, from Lin-Manuel Miranda to Jake Gyllenhaal to Sutton Foster. As the acclaimed series heads into its fifth season, Obie Award–winning composer Michael Friedman (Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson) takes the reins as Encores! Off-Center’s next Artistic Director.
