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, with Songs for a New World, opening at the Vaudeville Theatre in 2021. Starring David Hunter (Waitress), Rachel John (Hamilton), Cedric Neal (Motown The Musical) and Rachel Tucker (Come From Away), 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 (My Son Pinocchio – Southwark Playhouse), with music direction by Adam Hoskins (Doctor Zhivago), this beautiful song cycle will be brought to life at the Vaudeville for five weeks.
