Hailed as “one of Broadway’s smartest and most sophisticated songwriters since Stephen Sondheim” (Philadelphia Inquirer), three-time Tony Award winning composer, lyricist, conductor, arranger, orchestrator, director and performer Jason Robert Brown will present a very special show on 26th May 2015 at London’s Royal Festival Hall showcasing some of his best loved work.
Jason Robert Brown, winner of three Tony Awards, is best known for his dazzling scores to several of the most renowned musicals of his generation, including the highly-praised The Bridges of Madison County, the recently revived The Last Five Years (due to be released as a film later this year with Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan), 13 which brought Jason to London in 2012 as both composer and director (his debut) and the seminal Parade
It is no wonder that Jason Robert Brown’s talent has been hailed as “extraordinary”, (Chicago Tribune) with The New York Times referring to him as “a leading member of a new generation of composers who embody high hopes for the American musical.”
Other standout work includes Songs for a New World, a theatrical song cycle directed by Daisy Prince, which played Off-Broadway in 1995, and has since been seen in hundreds of productions around the world, and Honeymoon In Vegas, based on Andrew Bergman’s film, which begins previews in November on Broadway.
Jason Robert Brown said, “It is long past time for me to come back to London! I have so much new music to share, and I have missed the love and support that I always get from my fans in the UK. I cannot wait to get on the stage of this amazing hall with some truly extraordinary singers and players – I have a feeling it will be well worth the wait!”
Jason has continued to capture audiences across the capital. Having debuted at the Purcell Room at the Southbank Centre, he then went on to play two sold out shows at the West End’s Garrick Theatre, and now presents his very first show at the prestigious Royal Festival Hall.
For this one off concert Jason will be joined by special guests, to the backdrop of a full orchestra.
