JASON ROBERT BROWN
The Media Theatre is the first professional regional theatre in the Philadelphia/ Wilmington region that will be producing his Tony winning musical “The Bridges of Madison County” this coming fall. Based on the novel which was turned into a hit film starring Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood, the show won Jason Robert Brown the Tony awards for Best Score and Best Orchestrations in 2014. Media will also be producing his teen smash “13” in July.

Jason Robert Brown is the ultimate multi-hyphenate – an equally skilled composer, lyricist, conductor, arranger, orchestrator, director and performer – best known for his dazzling scores to several of the most renowned musicals of his generation, including the recently revived “The Last Five Years”, his debut song cycle “Songs for a New World”, and the seminal “Parade”, winner of the 1999 Best Score Tony. The New York Times refers to Jason as “a leading member of a new generation of composers who embody high hopes for the American musical.” 

His latest Broadway musical “Honeymoon In Vegas,” starring Tony Danza and based on Andrew Bergman’s film, followed a triumphant production at Paper Mill Playhouse.  A film version of Jason's epochal Off-Broadway musical “The Last Five Years” was released in 2015, starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan and directed by Richard LaGravenese, and a film of Jason’s musical “13” is currently in development.
Jason studied composition at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, N.Y., with Samuel Adler, Christopher Rouse, and Joseph Schwantner.  He lives with his wife, composer Georgia Stitt, and their daughters in New York City.  Jason is a proud member of the Dramatists Guild and the American Federation of Musicians Local 802 & 47.  Visit him on the web at www.jasonrobertbrown.com.

Two Media Theatre students, Lexi Gwynn and Anna Rosenthal, will appear with Jason Robert Brown on stage performing his songs as he accompanies.

Jason Robert Brown appears at The Media Theatre on Wednesday May 18 at 7:00pm. For tickets, visit mediatheatre.org or call 610-891-0100.
