From the theater:
Adapted from Teatro San Diego’s successful production streamed during the Covid-19 pandemic, SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD is a gorgeous song cycle by Jason Robert Brown, composer of Parade, Bridges of Madison County, and The Last Five Years. Having the common theme of making a difficult and important decision, each song and performer represents a form of social injustice in America such as Feminism, White Privilege, Gender Equality, and Racial Justice.

About Teatro San Diego: Teatro San Diego was founded in the midst of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic in order to help San Diego become the vibrant, all-inclusive community it has always had the potential to be. At the time of the organization’s inception, the two largest minority communities in San Diego were Mexican and Filipino. Thus, the city’s two most prevalent languages aside from English were Spanish and Tagalog. "Teatro" means "Theatre" in both languages. These original San Diegans have been under-served and under-represented in San Diego’s performing arts community and Teatro San Diego works to rectify this disparity by emphasizing and accounting for the inclusion of all local nationalities and languages.
