About this show

This sensational show returns to the West End from February 2021 and comes after the show's huge success at The London Palladium in early October when it was the first musical to be performed on a West End stage since the Covid-19 pandemic began.

It’s about one moment. It’s about hitting the wall and having to make a choice… or take a stand… or turn around and go back. These are the stories and characters of today, the Songs for a New World. Starring David Hunter (Waitress), Rachel John (Hamilton), Cedric Neal (Motown The Musical) and Rachel Tucker (Come From Away), and Shem Omari James (Songs For a New World) this is the first musical from Tony Award winner, Jason Robert Brown (The Last Five Years, Parade, Bridges of Madison County). This moving collection of powerful songs examines life, love and the choices that we make.

Songs For A New World transports audiences through time and space to meet a startling array of characters – every one of them so different, but all representing our world today and our hopes for a new world… a better world.

Directed by the brilliant Séimí Campbell (Songs For A New World, The London Palladium), with music direction by Josh Winstone, musical supervision by Adam Hoskins, lighting design by Jack Knowles, design consultancy by Madeleine Girling and sound design by Jonny Dickie for Robins Audio, this beautiful song cycle will be brought to life by this incredible cast at the Vaudeville Theatre for a limited five-week run!

The Vaudeville Theatre operates strictly under the government COVID-19 guidelines. For further information check our COVID-19 secure information page. All bookings in a party must only be from the same household or the legally defined support bubble.
