Tony Award-winning composer, lyricist, conductor, and pianist Jason Robert Brown is heading across the pond for a one-night-only concert at the London Palladium April 11. Brown will be joined by the 60-piece BBC Orchestra and a host of yet-to-be announced special guests from London’s West End.
An Evening With Jason Robert Brown will feature music from a number of his musicals, including The Bridges of Madison County, Parade, The Last Five Years, and Honeymoon in Vegas, as well as selections from his debut song cycle, Songs for a New World. The concert will also feature some of Brown’s new work.
“My general feeling about musicians is ‘the more the merrier’, and particularly so when it’s a group of musicians as versatile, as sensitive, and as spectacularly virtuosic as the members of the BBC Concert Orchestra,” said Brown in a statement. “I can’t wait to share the music I’ve written with these brilliant musicians, these glorious singers, and the wonderful audience at the Palladium and on the air!”
The composer is currently a resident artist at SubCulture, and regularly stages concerts in collaboration with top Broadway talent. Over the course of three years and over 30 concerts, Brown has welcomed a range of guests, including Kelli O’Hara, Steven Pasquale, Joshua Henry, Caissie Levy, Tom Kitt, Duncan Sheik, and Shaina Taub.
Brown will next perform at SubCulture with Sutton Foster February 24 at 8 PM and 10 PM.
