Brave New World: A Brand New Musical has a book by Ben Andron, music by Jonnie Rockwell and Grammy and Emmy Award winner John McDaniel and lyrics by Tony nominee Bill Russell. Andy Einhorn is the music director, and Srda Vasiljevic is the associate director for the AEA lab.

The musical, according to press notes, "tells the story of a future in which everybody is happy... because anything that could cause pain has been eliminated. True love (and its inevitable heartbreak) has been replaced with free sex; religion and artistic expression have been replaced with mindless sport & distraction, & citizens are brainwashed & drugged into a perpetual state of happiness. Humans don't even reproduce anymore; they are hatched in test tubes to avoid the dangers of family. But there are reservations where savages still live according to the 'old' ways. They are fenced in & know nothing of this perfect new world... until one such savage - John - is given special permission to leave & experience the wonders of civilization. Two worlds collide in Huxley's provocative story about love, humanity & loss, set against the backdrop of a world where the most dangerous thing you can do, is to have an original thought."
