Tony Award-winning composer-lyricist Jason Robert Brown will take part in the Broadway at Birdland concert series July 30 at Birdland in Manhattan. 

The 6 PM and 8:30 PM concerts will feature new material as well as songs from The Last Five Years, Songs for a New World, Parade and 13. Material from Brown's solo album, "Wearing Someone Else’s Clothes," will also be featured.

The evening will also feature special guests Leslie Odom, Jr. ("Smash," Leap of Faith), Heidi Blickenstaff ([title of show], The Little Mermaid) and Tony Award nominee Jennifer Damiano (Next to Normal, Spider Man: Turn Off The Dark).

Brown won the Tony Award in 1999 for his work on Parade. As previously announced, his two-person musical, The Last Five Years, will receive a 2013 New York revival by Second Stage Theatre.
