Synopsis:
From Tony-award winners William Finn and James Lapine, here is an energetic, sardonic, often comical musical about a composer during a medical emergency. Gordon collapses into his lunch and awakes in the hospital surrounded by his maritime-enthusiast lover, his mother, a co-worker, the doctor and the nurses. Reluctantly, he had been composing a song for a children's television show that features a frog — Mr. Bungee — and the spectre of this large green character and the unfinished work haunts him throughout his medical ordeal. What was thought to be a tumor turns out to be something more operable and Gordon recovers, grateful for a chance to compose the songs he yearns to produce.

«Jaunty [with] moments of captivating eccentricity.» — The New York Times

«Apt and original...A fascinating story.» — The New York Post

«Filled with beguiling, buoyant melody [and] witty and original lyrics...The kind of musical theatre invention we have come to expect from this gifted artist.» — InTheatre

A New Brain premiered at the Lincoln Center Theater in May of 1998.
