Four actors, two musicians and a baby grand ... Miracle Theatre Group and Staged! Portland’s Musical Theatre Series are collaborating to unplug the traditional summer musical in an intimate, acoustic presentation of Tony Award-winning Jason Robert Brown’s first produced musical, the off-Broadway hit SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD.
From a ledge 57 stories above Fifth Avenue to the deck of a 1492 Spanish sailing ship ... from a young man who hopes basketball is his ticket out of the ghetto to the wife of a certain North Pole resident who loves her husband but just can’t face another Christmas alone ... it’s the hard choices and startling discoveries we make at pivotal moments in life that drive the stories of this theatrical song cycle filled with love, laughter, adventure and, above all, passion for life.
SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD plays June 18-July 3, 2010 at the Milagro Theatre (525 SE Stark St., Portland). Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm. Tickets are $17-$22 ($13 for students/seniors) when purchased in advance; $24-$29 ($19 for students/seniors) at the door.
