Elmwood Playhouse Announces Cast for “Songs For A New World”
We are excited to announce the cast for “Songs for a New World” by Tony Award-winner Jason Robert Brown, directed by Claudia Stefany and musical direction by Tony Bellomy. “Songs for a New World” kicks off Elmwood’s 75th Anniversary year and is the first musical since the COVID-19 pandemic forced a global hiatus on in-person gatherings in March of 2020. “Songs for a New World” was the first produced show by Jason Robert Brown (“Parade”, “Bridges of Madison County”).
Representing a broad range of musical genres including pop, gospel and jazz, the songs are linked by a common theme that Brown says is about “the moment of decision. It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice, or take a stand, or turn around and go back.” Although set in a variety of times and places, the show poignantly expresses the hopes and challenges of our present reality.
The cast of “Songs for a New World” will include John Ade, Jenn Bedell, Chad P. Hudson, Tyler Miranda, Zully Ramos, and Miran Robarts. Performances will run from January 15, 2022 – February 5, 2022. “Songs For A New World” is presented by special arrangement Music Theatre International.
