Ateneo Blue Repertory presents a new take on the off-broadway hit A New Brain as it’s 22nd Season Premiere.
A New Brain follows the story of a disillusioned yet talented songwriter named Gordon Schwinn who is diagnosed with a rare medical condition that sends him into a coma and could potentially end his life.
Throughout the musical, Gordon’s greatest fear is dying with his greatest songs still inside him, so to write them from his hospital bed while going through a series of surreal dreams. After finally having the surgery and recovering fully, he rekindles the relationships he had previously been neglecting, and ultimately realizes the value of his life.
Show dates are July 24- August 10, 2013 at the Black Box Theatre, Ateneo de Manila University.
