On his official website, Brown posted answers to several readers' questions on Dec. 22. In one answer he details his current projects. Brown writes, "Oh, my, there’s a lot on my plate at the moment. Daisy Prince and I are writing a new show together, which we hope to premiere in the spring of 2012. Marsha Norman and I are hard at work on a musical version of The Bridges of Madison County, and we’ll probably do a private reading of the first act early next year. Alfred Uhry and I are adapting a French musical for Kathleen Marshall to direct. I’ve been hired once again to write the score for the 2011 State Farm National Convention. A screenplay of 13 is currently being shopped to movie studios, and a movie of The Last Five Years is in pre-production. I’m trying to finish a new solo album for release this summer. And a German theater producer has asked me to write some songs for a musical version of a very famous fantasy novel. Not to mention Honeymoon In Vegas, which is on a path to Broadway in 2012, and a possible Broadway production of The Last Five Years which I will be directing!"
Brown won a Tony Award for his score to Parade.
