News   Jason Robert Brown at Work on Several New Musicals Plus Screen Versions of 13 and Last Five Years
 
Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown, most recently represented on Broadway with the kid-friendly musical 13, is currently at work on a slew of projects, including a musical version of The Bridges of Madison County.

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.
