As he did with the Artist-In-Residency series in 2015, Brown will curate each performance, weaving a mix of material from his personal career, along with new works in development. Brown is a composer, lyricist, conductor, arranger, orchestrator, director and performer. In 2014, his Bridges of Madison County was awarded Tony Awards for Best Score and Best Orchestrations. He was also awarded the Tony Award for Best Score for his 1999 musical Parade. The launch of the SubCulture series this year featured original members from each of his New York productions, including Kelli O’Hara, Steven Pasquale, Carolee Carmello, Jessica Molaskey, Lauren Kennedy, Betsy Wolfe, Graham Phillips, Allie Trimm and Aaron Simon Gross.
"For me, and for thousands of other people in NY, SubCulture is an essential part of the cultural pulse of the city," commented Brown in a press statement. "My residency there has been one of the most artistically satisfying and emotionally electric experiences of my life, and I can’t wait to keep pushing and stretching in the New Year."
Guests for the February and March concerts are yet to be announced. Tickets to the Jan. 25 evening with Burgess are now on sale. They can be purchased by visiting subculturenewyork.com or at the SubCulture box office, located at 45 Bleecker St. in New York City.
