Songs for a New World

Produced in partnership with The Makana Aloha Foundation, Marji Knowles & Michael Tibbott, Mason & Trudy Williams

It’s about one moment. It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice. Will you take a stand, turn around and go back, or find the courage to move forward? These are the stories and characters of today, the songs for a new world. The first musical from Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown (Parade, Bridges of Madison County), this moving collection of powerful songs explores life, love and the choices that we make.

This contemporary musical illuminates the timelessness of self-discovery.

Safety Practices

We followed strict safety measures at all rehearsals for Songs for a New World by practicing social distancing, required face masks and/or shields at all times, and provided our cast and crew with hand sanitizer for use upon arrival of rehearsal, during breaks, and when leaving.

While masks were not used during performances, our show featured choreography with specially-designed set pieces. These set pieces allowed each actor their own protective space, while still allowing a wide array of movement and choreography on the stage.
