Popular Mechanicals and CGTC announce cast for A New Brain

AussieTheatre can exclusively announce the cast for The Popular Mechanicals and CGTC’s upcoming production of A New Brain, set to hit Melbourne in 2018.

Produced by the team that brought the 2016 production of The 25th Annual Putnam Country Spelling Bee to MTC’s Lawler Theatre, A New Brain is a fast paced, surreal and irreverent musical. Written by William Finn (and partially biographic) the production follows Gordon, a struggling songwriter who undergoes a life changing medical emergency. Through themes of love, loss and revelation, this story is about a man who learns to appreciate the life he has rather than the life he thinks he deserves.
