FINAL EXTENSION! MUST CLOSE MAR 17.

From Tony® Award-winning composer JASON ROBERT BROWN (PARADE) comes a timely new musical about two talented young journalists on increasingly diverging paths. Set in the late 1990s amid a rapidly changing media landscape we meet a fast-rising journalist, Ethan Dobson, and an assistant copy editor, Robin Martinez, at the revered magazine The Connector. In a world that values the next big sensation, Ethan’s writing prowess and ambition force him to confront how far he’ll go for the ultimate scoop and Robin to consider how far she’ll go to stop him.

With a book by JONATHAN MARC SHERMAN, THE CONNECTOR will feature Brown leading the band at each performance and reuniting with THE LAST FIVE YEARS and SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD director DAISY PRINCE.

Beginning Tuesday, March 5, Ashley Pérez Flanagan will assume the role of ROBIN MARTINEZ and Joanna Carpenter will join the performing ensemble. Hannah Cruz’s final performance will be on Sunday, March 3.

JASON ROBERT BROWN

MUSIC & LYRICS

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 our time, including the generation-defining “THE LAST FIVE YEARS,” his debut song cycle “SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD,” and the seminal “PARADE” now on Broadway in a spectacular Tony Award-winning revival directed by Michael Arden, for which he won the 1999 Tony Award for Best Score.

Jason Robert Brown has been hailed as “one of Broadway’s smartest and most sophisticated songwriters since Stephen Sondheim” (Philadelphia Inquirer), and his “extraordinary, jubilant theater music” (Chicago Tribune) has been heard all over the world, whether in one of the hundreds of productions of his musicals every year or in his own incendiary live performances.  Jason’s score for “THE BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY,” a musical adapted with Marsha Norman from the bestselling novel, received two Tony Awards (for Best Score and Orchestrations). “HONEYMOON IN VEGAS,” based on Andrew Bergman’s film, opened on Broadway in 2015 following a triumphant production at Paper Mill Playhouse.  A film version of his epochal Off-Broadway musical “THE LAST FIVE YEARS” was released in 2015, starring Anna Kendrick and Jeremy Jordan and directed by Richard LaGravenese. His major musicals as composer and lyricist include: “13,” written with Robert Horn and Dan Elish, which opened on Broadway in 2008 and became a celebrated Netflix musical in 2022; “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 (and was later directed by the composer in its record-breaking Off-Broadway run at Second Stage Theatre in 2013); “PARADE,” written with Alfred Uhry and directed by Harold Prince, which won both the Drama Desk and New York Drama Critics’ Circle Awards for Best New Musical, as well as garnering Jason the Tony Award for Original Score; and “SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD,” a theatrical song cycle directed by Daisy Prince, which has since been seen in hundreds of productions around the world since its 1995 Off-Broadway debut, including a celebrated revival at New York’s City Center in the summer of 2018.  “Parade” was also the subject of two major revivals: the first, directed by Rob Ashford, at London’s Donmar Warehouse and then at the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles; and the second, Michael Arden’s acclaimed 2023 Broadway production starring Ben Platt and Micaela Diamond. Jason collaborated with comedy legend Billy Crystal, Amanda Green, Lowell Ganz, and Babaloo Mandel on a Broadway musical of “MR. SATURDAY NIGHT”  Jason conducted his orchestral adaptation of E.B. White’s novel “THE TRUMPET OF THE SWAN” with the National Symphony Orchestra and recorded the score for PS Classics.

Jason’s next show, a chamber musical created with Daisy Prince and Jonathan Marc Sherman called “THE CONNECTOR,” opens in January 2024 at MCC Theater. Future projects include an adaptation of Lilian Lee’s “FAREWELL MY CONCUBINE,” created with Kenneth Lin and Moisés Kaufman; and “MIDNIGHT IN THE GARDEN OF GOOD AND EVIL” a new musical written with Taylor Mac based on John Berendt’s book and directed by Rob Ashford. Jason is the winner of the 2018 Louis Auchincloss Prize, the 2002 Kleban Award for Outstanding Lyrics, and the 1996 Gilman & Gonzalez-Falla Foundation Award for Musical Theatre.  Jason’s songs, including the cabaret standard “Stars and the Moon,” have been performed and recorded by Ariana Grande, Jennifer Nettles, Brandi Carlile, Audra McDonald, Kristin Chenoweth, Billy Porter, Betty Buckley, Renée Fleming, Jon Hendricks and many others.

As a soloist or with his band, Jason has performed concerts around the world.  For six years, his monthly sold-out performances at New York’s SubCulture featured many of the music and theater world’s most extraordinary performers, including a sold-out concert at Town Hall with Stephen Sondheim. His newest collection, “Coming From Inside the House,” featuring Ariana Grande and Shoshana Bean, commemorates the final SubCulture concert, recorded remotely during the pandemic. His previous albums, “How We React and How We Recover” and “Wearing Someone Else’s Clothes” are available from Ghostlight/Sh-K-Boom Records. Jason’s 2012 concert with Anika Noni Rose was broadcast on PBS, and he was the featured soloist for an episode of BBC Radio’s long-running “Friday Night Is Music Night,” broadcast live from the London Palladium and featuring the BBC Concert Orchestra.  His collaboration with singer Lauren Kennedy, “Songs of Jason Robert Brown,” is available on PS Classics. Jason is also the composer of the incidental music for the Broadway revival of “You Can’t Take It With You,” David Lindsay-Abaire’s “Kimberly Akimbo” and “Fuddy Meers,” and Kenneth Lonergan’s “The Waverly Gallery,” and was a Tony Award nominee for his contributions to the score of “Urban Cowboy the Musical.”  He has also contributed music to the hit Nickelodeon television series, “The Wonder Pets” as well as Sesame Street.  Jason spent ten years teaching at the USC School of Dramatic Arts and has also taught at Harvard University, Princeton University, and Emerson College.

For the musical “Prince of Broadway,” a celebration of the career of his mentor Harold Prince, Jason was the musical supervisor and arranger.  Other New York credits as conductor and arranger include “URBAN COWBOY THE MUSICAL” on Broadway; “DINAH WAS,” off-Broadway and on national tour; “WHEN PIGS FLY” off-Broadway; William Finn’s “A NEW BRAIN” at Lincoln Center Theater; the 1992 tribute to Stephen Sondheim at Carnegie Hall (recorded by RCA Victor); Yoko Ono’s “NEW YORK ROCK,” at the WPA Theatre; and Michael John LaChiusa’s “THE PETRIFIED PRINCE” at the Public Theatre. Jason orchestrated Andrew Lippa’s “john and jen,” Off-Broadway at Lamb’s Theatre.  Additionally, Jason served as the orchestrator and arranger of Charles Strouse and Lee Adams’s score for a proposed musical of “STAR WARS”  Jason has conducted and created arrangements and orchestrations for Liza Minnelli, John Pizzarelli, and Michael Feinstein, among many others.

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 Nyack, New York.  Jason is a proud member of the Dramatists Guild and the American Federation of Musicians Local 802.  Visit him on the web at www.jasonrobertbrown.com.
