Join Tony Award–winning Broadway composer Jason Robert Brown for an intimate evening of stage and film favorites. This limited seating event places you onstage with one of the most dynamic contemporary songwriters in the theatre today. You won’t want to miss this special evening presented by the Musical Theatre Initiative at Wright State University and the Victoria Theatre Association.
Brown is “hailed as one of Broadway’s smartest and most sophisticated songwriters since Stephen Sondheim” by the Philadelphia Inquirer, and praised for his “extraordinary, jubilant theater music,” by the Chicago Tribune.
Brown is the ultimate multi-hyphenate—an equally skilled composer, lyricist, conductor, arranger, orchestrator, director and performer. He is best known for his dazzling scores to several renowned musicals—including Honeymoon in Vegas, 13, and The Bridges of Madison County, the recent film The Last Five Years, his debut song cycle, Songs for the New World, and the seminal Parade, which won the 1999 Tony Award for Best Score.
Joe Deer, Distinguished Professor of Musical Theatre, who directs the Musical Theatre Initiative and also recently won a 2016 Governor’s Award for Arts in Ohio, encourages alumni to take advantage of this unique opportunity to observe some of Broadway’s most remarkable and high-level artists as they work Wright State’s talented students and Broadway stars of the future.
