Gordon Schwinn, a frustrated composer for a children’s TV show, collapses during lunch and finds himself in the hospital. There he contemplates his life, relationships, and the meaning of music while facing medical uncertainty and hauntings by an imaginary frog from the show he’s composing for. A New Brain by Tony Award-winning composer & BSC Associate Artist William Finn is a touching, unexpectedly funny, and relatable musical exploring life’s beauty when we take the time to appreciate it.

William Finn, the mastermind behind Broadway & Off Broadway hits like The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Falsettos and Little Miss Sunshine, continues to captivate audiences with his emotive storytelling and soul-stirring melodies. BSC and WTF are thrilled to present one of his most heartfelt creations, A New Brain.

William Finn’s musical genius shines through in every note. From infectious, toe-tapping tunes to heartrending ballads that tug at your heartstrings, A New Brain delivers an emotional rollercoaster that leaves audiences laughing, crying and singing along.
