A New Brain

I suppose any show that is autobiographical is going to be  pretty heartfelt, but with William Finn, who puts heart into everything, there's even more here. I loved this show and I can't believe the only song I had heard from it previously was Heart and Music. (A song about putting heart into music. META.)

I kept waiting for Kristin Chenoweth's obvious huge number, but it never happened, and then I realized that's because this was before she was famous.

Don't listen to Poor, Unsuccessful and Fat if you're having a bad day for self-esteem otherwise it might hit too close to home and you'll want to drive off a bridge.
