A New Brain
Friday, May 18 to Sunday, May 27
Presented by Front Porch Theatricals, A New Brain is a joyful and touching musical about making the most out of life. When a neurotic, frustrated composer is confronted with a life-threatening medical challenge, he finds comfort and healing in his craft, friends, and strangers. This enthralling and eccentric musical is Tony Award-winning creator William Finn’s semi-autobiographical account of his battle for life and health, and finding the healing power of music.
