Casa Mañana is excited to announce that Tony Award-winning Composer Jason Robert Brown will conduct a master class and perform live in concert Saturday, February 25, 2012 at Casa Mañana Theatre.
The New York Times refers to Jason Robert Brown as “a leading member of a new generation of composers who embody high hopes for the American musical.” His four major musicals as composer and lyricist include: “13,” which opened on Broadway in 2008; “The Last Five Years,” which was cited as one of Time Magazine’s 10 Best of 2001 and won Drama Desk Awards for Best Music and Best Lyrics; “Parade,” which premiered at Lincoln Center Theatre in 1998, and subsequently won both the Drama Desk and New York Drama Critics’ Circle Awards for Best New Musical, as well as garnering Brown the Tony Award for Original Score; and “Songs for a New World,” which played Off-Broadway in 1995, and has since been seen in hundreds of productions around the world.
“We are thrilled to continue our relationship with the Broadway community,” says Wally Jones, Casa Mañana’s President & Executive Producer. “Bringing Jason Robert Brown to Fort Worth is a highlight in a long line of professional directors, musicians and performers that have come to Casa Mañana.”
