a musical by William Finn
book by William Finn & James Lapine

Directed by JP Thibodeau

A New Brain presents an evening of energetic, sardonic, often comic musical numbers about an aspiring stage composer during a medical emergency. After collapsing into a plate of ziti while lunching with a friend, he awakes awaiting a diagnosis in the hospital, surrounded by his maritime- enthusiast lover, his mother, a co-worker, the doctor and the nurses. He had reluctantly been engaged in the process of composing a song for a children's television show that features a man dressed as a frog, and the specter of this large green character and the unfinished work haunts him throughout his medical ordeal. In addition, he worries that he will never get to write the wonderful musicals that exist in his head and he hallucinates episodes involving people from his past and present. An inspiring, funny, warm-hearted adult musical for a mature audience.
