Get ready to delve into the warren of William Finn’s fantastical mind as we voyage into ‘A New Brain.’ Beautifully mirroring the mania of the show itself, this is a manic episode where we dart from deep, impossible discussions about unhoused populations, to analysing the changes between the original and the Encores! production, to learning all about the wonders of Organic Jim. Good luck!
