"Songs for a New World" is one of Jason Robert Brown's ("Last Five Years", "13") first works. It is an abstract theatrical song cycle that is about decisions people make.

Auditions for "Harms Way"

Convergence-continuum will be holding auditions for avant-garde playwright/poet Mac Wellman’s HARM’S WAY this Saturday, Feb. 18 at its Liminis Theater at 2 pm.  The play, set in a mythical America, follows the bizarre exploits of Santouche, a very angry person, as he attempts to make sense of his understanding of law & order in a land of other angry persons. The action doesn’t unfold in any specific time/place, but all the characters drink from the same poisonous well, which is definitely recognizably American. It might be any time in the last 70 years, or possibly even in the next.
