Songs For a New World is a musical exploration of life's emotions: risk, fear, hope, dreams, love. It's about those life-defining moments we reach. The show's concept is a collection of songs that tell a series of stories, rather than a continual and developing plot running throughout. Each song transports us through our American identity, our community, and our desires. They sweep us away into the moments where we stand our ground, break our silence, make a bargain, or find our way home. The show runs June 21 through July 7, 2013. For more info:
