Jason Robert Brown - Composer Spotlight Tonight

This came into my mailbox only yesterday so sorry for the late notice. Meet up with Jason Robert Brown, hailed as "the next Stephen Sondheim", at the cozy platform of the Esplanade Library. Here's more information:


Dear Friends,

This month, we celebrate the music and lyrics of Jason Robert Brown, hailed as "one of Broadway's smartest and most sophisticated songwriters since Stephen Sondheim", and his "extraordinary, jubilant theater music" has been heard all over the world, whether in one of the hundreds of productions of his musicals every year or in his own incendiary live performances. The New York Times refers to Jason as "a leading member of a new generation of composers who embody high hopes for the American musical." An accomplished pianist and singer, Jason Robert Brown is known for fusing pop-rock stylings with theatrical lyrics.

Our Artistic Directo, Mohamad Shaifulbahri will present a talk on Jason Robert Brown's Off-Broadway works, Songs For A New World (1995) and The Last Five Years (2002), his Broadway productions, Parade (1998) and 13 (2007), as well as songs from his solo album, Wearing Someone Else’s Clothes (2005).

Date: Friday, 14th December 2012
Venue: library@esplanade
Time: 7pm - 8pm
Admission is FREE

We will also be giving away 3 pairs of tickets to our upcoming Main Season 2013 production of Jason Robert Brown’s The Last Five Years in February 2013.
