Now playing at Theatre Horizon in Norristown, A New Brain is an autobiographical musical comedy written by Tony Award winners William Finn (The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee) and James Lapine (Into the Woods) that explores one man’s response to a life-threatening medical diagnosis. The 1998 play based on Finn’s own experience of finding out that he had a potentially deadly “arteriovenous malformation” – a tangle of blood vessels – in his brain, and having little choice but to go through a risky neurosurgery to save his life.
