r2p logo120 Defying musical theatre tradition, 'Songs for a New World' takes you on a moving journey through the human experience. The song cycle's mini one-act plays span the gamut from sweetly poignant to hysterically funny to gut-wrenching; the Running to Places (R2P) production runs July 5-14 at the Kitchen Theatre in Ithaca.

Each song in the show is its own self-contained story, connected to the other songs by an underlying theme: the moments of decision in our lives. Should I answer the call of the open road? Should I make a commitment, and what will I miss out on if I do commit? Fear, courage, love and hope intertwine in complex ways throughout the show.

"Some of the stories are familiar: should I end this relationship and move on? Some are more unexpected, like Mrs. Claus feeling that Santa is not attending to her needs. Zoe Klausner, who plays Mrs. Claus, has an incredible instinct for comic timing, and she gives a truly hilarious performance," says R2P artistic director Joey Steinhagen.
