Book, Music and Lyrics by Jason Robert Brown
"It's about one moment..." This lyric from the opening song sums up Jason Robert Brown's acclaimed revue.
The show offers a look at one element that has connected humanity throughout the ages: The moments in which we are faced with monumental changes. A series of vignettes highlights these moments...the decision to leave one's lover, to return home, to quietly push through in times of war, to fight an unfair system or to pursue one's lifelong dream. The moments when we discover that the plans we have had for ourselves are veering off course. Changes in mind, body and soul. Those changes open the door to the unknown: A terrifying world. An ambiguous world.
A New World.
After performing selections from this piece at our Contemporary Selections concert in 2008, MTM is delighted to bring this intimate, stirring, hilarious and powerful work to Madison in its entirety.
Featuring Kassy Coleman (Yours, Anne), Matthew Fayfer, Matthew Huston, and Stephanie Vidalakis.
