The show employs four performers who do not play the same characters throughout the show, but have consistently developing character arcs. Composer Jason Robert Brown has said of his show, "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."
The creative team for the performance includes Jeremy Merrifield (Executive Producer), James Sampliner (Musical Direction), and Richard J. Hinds (Associate Director).
SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD is presented through special arrangement with Musical Theatre International. All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI. 421 West 54th Street, New York, NY 10019 Phone: 212-541-4684 Fax: 212-397-4684 www.MTIshows.com.
