Lansing gets ‘A New Brain’

By |2008-01-03T09:00:00-05:00January 3rd, 2008|Entertainment|

Peppermint Creek Theatre Company presents “A New Brain,” by the Tony-award winning authors of “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.” “Brain” is described as an energetic, sardonic, often comical musical about a composer during a medical emergency. Gordon collapses into his lunch and awakes in the hospital surrounded by his maritime-enthusiast lover, his mother, a co-worker, the doctor and the nurses. Reluctantly, he had been composing a song for a children’s television show that features a frog – Mr. Bungee – and the spector of this large green character and the unfinished work haunts him throughout his medical ordeal. Gordon searches for a chance to compose the songs he yearns to produce.
