‘A New Brain’ Musical Comedy

‘A New Brain,’ presented by David Gauci and Davine Productions, is a musical comedy about gratitude and fresh beginnings and another highly-anticipated first for South Australia from the people who brought you the smash hit, ‘Beautiful, The Carole King Musical.’

A New Brain is by Tony Award-winning composer William Finn who is well known for Broadway favourites such as The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee and Falsettos. Book by Finn and James Lapine and vocal arrangements by Jason Robert Brown make an impressive team with serious Broadway credentials.

William Finn faced his own mortality after a medical emergency and wrote this semi-autobiographical account of his life and death experience. Surreal and humorous, this is the musical he thought he may not live to write.

With music inspired by Broadway composers like Sondheim, Bernstein, Porter, Rodgers and Hart, A New Brain touches on themes of relationships, life and death struggles and the healing power of time and music. It features more than 20 songs, 12 larger-than-life characters and an orchestra of nine.

Clever, sardonic, and comical, it is a musical about those moments that remind us of who we are and what’s important in life.

A New Brain will run from October 13 to October 21 for 8 shows only at the Star Theatre One. Full price tickets $48, concession $44.

Evenings: Friday 13 October, Saturday 14, Wednesday 18, Thursday 19, Friday 20, Saturday 21 at 7:30pm. Matinees: Sunday 15 October, 2.30 pm & Saturday 21 October 2.30pm.
