about the show

Simply Exceptional

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. Barrington Stage Company is 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.

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