Listen to the song that HE sings!,
This review is from: Songs for a New World (1996 Original New York Cast) (Audio CD)
Jason Robert Brown straps you into an emotional rollercoaster when you listen to his new show "Songs for a New World." You get goosebumps from the time the first note is sung until the last number (to which Brown lends his voice.) Brown has given you a rainbow of songs, spirited "dance-number" songs, earth-shattering balads, comedic show numbers, and songs that just make you smile. Everyone of these performers is beyound talented, they are amazing. And when the full company sings together...heavenly. You won't skip one track because everyone is wonderful. This CD won't leave your player...unless of course it is to put in Brown's newest show "Parade." Or Audra McDonald's "Way Back to Paradise" where she sings "Stars and the Moon" a piece from "Songs..." This CD is a must for any musical theatre buff, any lover of the theatre, or anyone else who simply wants to hear a fabulous work of art. "Songs for a New World" is spectacular!
