Broadway stars and Florida natives Ashley Brown and Michael James Scott will be joined by Tony-nominee Josh Young and Wicked's Julia Murney to appear in a special one night only benefit production of SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD on Friday, January 23 at 6PM in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Written by three-time Tony-winning composer Jason Robert Brown and helmed by Broadway director Daniel Goldstein, a portion of the proceeds from the evening will be donated to the Cocoa Beach Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Arts Fund benefitting local arts organizations and education programs.
Jason Robert Brown’s SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD is a series of songs, connected by the theme "the moment of decision." The show employs four performers who do not play the same characters throughout the show, but have consistently developing character arcs. Composer Jason Robert Brown has said of his show, "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."
