Tabard’s 19th Season

New Beginnings

A Season of New Experiences, New Relationships, New Opportunities, All New Beginnings

A New Brain

South Bay Premiere

January 10-26, 2020

Music & lyrics by William Finn; Arranged by Jason Robert Brown; Book by William Finn & James Lapine

Birthed by composer/writer William Finn’s own personal experience, this compelling, inspiring modern musical brims with hope and laughter.  Follow Gordon, a neurotic, frustrated composer, as he navigates his brain aneurism!  Finding comfort and expression in the healing power of art, he eventually embraces the chance of a “new brain” and the hope of new melodies that may pour forth.  It’s something to sing about!

Apt and original… A fascinating stor—The New York Post
