A NEW BRAIN: Jan 27 - Feb 18
Groundhog Day predictions include three more weeks of A New Brain!
Our cast member, Stuart Yu, shares his thoughts on how this show reminds us (as the song says) "when there's a moment, grab it and shake it, take it by the hand..." "Coming into my second production of A New Brain, it feels almost like visiting an old friend. It was the first show I ever music directed, and the score is just as exciting and challenging as I remembered it! It has been such a thrilling process to look at the show from the other side of the table this time, working alongside this extremely talented and generous group of artists.
Since that first production, I've composed and produced two of my own musicals, and moved to New York in pursuit of developing my craft further. Revisiting the show now brings a new perspective on the protagonist, who struggles to find time to pursue his art amidst work, health and family issues. In a similar vein, life has gotten in the way and I haven’t been nearly as prolific as I would have liked, so this show has been a necessary reminder to take time for what’s important to me.
Seeing every single person involved in this production so committed to bringing this piece to life is exactly why I fell in love with theatre. There's a beautiful, ephemeral quality of theatre where we share a space together for a night to give our heart and music to you and I can't wait to do that very soon." #ANewBrain #heartandmusic #TGPANewBrain #brooklyn #parkslope #theatre #galleryplayers #thegalleryplayers #season51
