    A New Brain

    Presented by at BCA Plaza Theatre

    March 15 - April 6, 2013


    A New Brain

    This engaging and fast-paced musical by William Finn (Falsettos and The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) recounts the sudden illness and subsequent personal transformation of composer Gordon Schwinn: Schwinn, a frustrated musician trapped in an unsatisfying job writing songs for a children's tv show, suffers a sudden life-threatening brain disorder which requires that he undergo an emergency surgery to try to save him. The tumultuous, comical and surreal ordeal that engulfs Gordon and those closest to him -- his mother, partner and publicist -- teaches everyone, especially Gordon, something profound about what is truly important in life, and in love.
