A NEW BRAIN

Music & Lyrics: William Finn
Book: William Finn & James Lapine

Three Rivers Music Theatre is proud to present the Fort Wayne premiere of the hit, Off-Broadway, musical A NEW BRAIN!

A New Brain, inspired by William Finn's personal experiences, is a medical tragedy seen through the iris of a Looney Tunes short. After struggling composer Gordon Michael Schwinn collapses facefirst into a plate of spaghetti, he is diagnosed with a brain tumor and is forced to come to terms with his creative ambitions and the lovable screw-ups in his life: an overbearing mother a ruthless kiddie-show host and a boyfriend who'd "rather be sailing". The musical opened at Lincoln Center Theater on June 18, 1998 and ran for 78 performances, winning the Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical.

The cast of A New Brain includes Billy Dawson (Gordon Schwinn), Debbie Moore (Lisa), Kibwe Cooper (Roger Delli-Bovi), Chrissy Weadick (Rhoda), Kat Hickey (Mimi Schwinn), James Stover* (Mr. Bungee), Renee Gonzales (Waitress/Nancy), Tyler Hanford (Doctor Berenstein), Albert Brownlee (Richard), and Chandler Chastain (Minister).  *Actor appears courtesy of Actors' Equity Association.
