A Cuppa Tea, Chris Maikish, and Jim Blackett deliver a phenomenal production of Songs for a New World! Each member of this fantastically talented four-piece ensemble contributes to the whole of the show with beautiful, chill-inducing harmony while also bringing their own distinct flair to each song, moving through the emotion and story with superfluous precision. I just loved every bit of it. See this show. See it twice even! You'll be thrilled you did. ... full review

A WORLD APART FROM TYPICAL FRINGE FARE Like a breath of fresh air, Jason Robert Brown’s Songs for a New World far exceeded my expectations of both the Fringe and Brown’s uneven song cycle. This is an early work from the Tony-winner for Parade and Bridges of Madison County. “It’s about one moment,” Brown said. “It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice, or take a stand, or turn around and go back.” Um, not really. It’s a 1995 collection of trunk songs he cobbled together with Harold Prince’s daughter, Daisy, which means the plot-free entertainment is only as good as the last song. Some of them are forgettable, generic cabaret tunes from the 1980s Maltby & Shire school of “hitting the wall and having to make a choice,” and the... full review

I thought this was a fantastic show. Art is a transformative experience designed to inspire, provoke, or at the very least make us take a moment to think about how we experience the world. I find myself still humming the tunes, two days after I originally saw this production. Everyone can find something they can relate to in this play.
