Songs For A New World
About Songs For A New World
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.
These are the stories and characters of today, the Songs for a New World. Starring David Hunter (Waitress), Rachel John (Hamilton), Cedric Neal (Motown The Musical) and Rachel Tucker (Come From Away), and Shem Omari James (Songs For a New World) this is the first musical from Tony Award winner, Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years, Parade, Bridges of Madison County). This moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices that we make.
Songs For A New World transports audiences through time and space to meet a startling array of characters – every one of them so different, but all representing our world today and our hopes for a new world… a better world.
Directed by the brilliant Séimí Campbell (Songs For A New World, The London Palladium), with music direction by Adam Hoskins (Doctor Zhivago), this beautiful song cycle will be brought to life by this incredible cast at the Vaudeville Theatre for a limited five-week run!
The Vaudeville Theatre is a Covid-19 secure venue, and the following protocols are in place:

It’s fair to say that 2020 has called for us to follow whatever happens: pandemics, lockdown and a change to life as we once knew it. This sentiment is shared in the musical’s opening number, with characters in Songs For A New World having to make active choices to keep pushing on. With a leading cast of just four performers, each stand-alone song tells of the sacrifices individuals have made, as well as the cost of living.
Jason Robert Brown’s song cycle isn’t like a typical book musical. Instead, its contemporary score and heartfelt messages convey a hopeful, realistic world that’s forward-thinking.
