A New Brain is a musical about making the most out of life in the face of tragedy. When a neurotic, frustrated composer is confronted with a terminal illness, he finds comfort in the healing power of art. The show is William Finn’s autobiographical account of his own battle for life when afflicted with a brain injury. As the central character, Gordon, struggles to survive, he finds salvation in his music.
Brought to you by the writing team of tony-award winning Falsettos, A New Brain is a tender, heartfelt and funny exploration of the ways in which creativity stems from everywhere; “you gotta have heart and music!”
