At age twenty-five, songwriter Jason Robert Brown pulled together sixteen of the songs he had written for various projects (shows, cabaret, concerts) and director Daisy Prince found a common theme to make a show of the pieces. The theme is the moment of decision, the point at which you transition from the old to the new. The change may be geographical, emotional, professional or marital, but things are different than they were before.

The result is neither musical play nor revue, it is closer to a theatrical song cycle. A very theatrical song cycle.

Director: Zane C Weber

Musical Director: Luke Volker
