After surviving brain surgery, some Tony-winning composers might just take it easy. But as William Finn's life flashed before his eyes in 1992, he saw unwritten songs longing to be given voice. "When I got home to my studio . . . I basically put my hand over the piano and the songs came out," Finn told XM's Downstage Center program. The result, A New Brain, is about a composer surviving brain surgery, yes, but also about art and life making each other possible. Visit www.showup.com to order tickets.
