As part of Jason Robert Brown’s ongoing artistic residency at SubCulture, the three-time Tony winner welcomes Tony-winning actor Lena Hall to the downtown music club’s stage August 21 at 8 PM.
Brown’s residency kicked off in December 2014, intended as a one-year engagement. Due to the success of the monthly concert series and Brown’s enjoyment of the venue, the series has continued on. Hall will sing songs from Brown’s catalog and more.
The evening also features bass player and Broadway orchestrator Charlie Rosen. Rosen orchestrated Brown’s Honeymoon in Vegas and has also conducted and played in the Broadway orchestras for such shows as American Psycho and Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson.
Each concert at SubCulture incorporates music from Brown’s shows, such as Parade, 13, Songs for a New World, The Last Five Years, and more, and also includes new works in development. (Brown famously tried out original compositions for the current run of Prince of Broadway at SubCulture before landing on the final number “Do The Work.”)
Brown won two Tony Awards for 2014’s The Bridges of Madison County (Best Score and Best Orchestrations) and a Tony Award for his score of Parade in 1999. He is also the winner of five Drama Desk Awards—Outstanding Music and Orchestrations for Bridges, Outstanding Music and Lyrics for The Last Five Years, and Outstanding Music for Parade.
The same year Bridges bowed on Broadway, the revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch opened at the Belasco Theatre and Hall took home the Tony statue for her portrayal of Yitzhak.
