Jan. 27-28: songs for a new worldFriday, Saturday, Sunday: "Songs For a New World," at City Repertory Theatre: "I don't want to philosophize. I just want to tell a story." That line from Songs for a New World, which opens January 12 at City Repertory Theatre, describes it perfectly. In fact, it tells a whole collection of stories. It's not a book musical – there is no over-arching plot and no consistent characters throughout the evening - and yet it has a very strong sense of unity about it because every song in the show is essentially about the same thing: those moments in life when everything seems perfect and then suddenly disaster strikes, in the form of the loss of a job, an unexpected pregnancy, the death of a loved one, the end of a marriage, imprisonment, even suicide. But it’s even more about the way we regroup and figure out how to survive in a new set of circumstances – a new world – even against seemingly overwhelming odds. The City Repertory Theater production runs for five more performances – Jan. 19, 20, 21, 27 & 28. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30 pm. Sunday performances begin at 2 pm.

Here’s a summary of the latest developments as of Oct. 6

    “Nothing in the world is harder than speaking the truth and nothing easier than flattery.”

    –Dostoevsky, from “Crime and Punishment” (1866)

    Amen. Orange Trump’s relentless self regard and flattery of fools comes quickly to mind. Sadly, he also spreads an affliction that causes good people to become so cynical that they cannot discern praise from flattery. Caution becomes fear, doubt, and despair. Sad.
