About this show

William Finn's brilliantly funny, darkly neurotic, pop/jazz musical comedy, A New Brain is the autobiographical story of a theatre composer who is diagnosed with a brain disorder and who worries that he'll die without leaving anything of worth behind. The score ranges from gorgeous power ballads to wildly comic production numbers. With songs like "Trouble in His Brain," "Poor, Unsuccessful, and Fat," "A Really Lousy Day in the Universe," "Eating Myself Up Alive," and "The Homeless Lady's Revenge," this is a black comedy like none you've ever seen before. Scott Miller and Alison Helmer direct.
