Nine-time Tony Award winner and Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim will join Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown for his 50th SubCulture Residency Concert on June 24 at 8pm at New York City’s Town Hall. Joining the theatrical geniuses will be Tony Award-winner Katrina Lenk for an unforgettable evening of their songs performed in brand new arrangements with an orchestra of New York’s finest musicians.
“Every month at SubCulture, my band and I have collaborated with the best singers and songwriters from Broadway and beyond,” said Jason Robert Brown in the press release. “I knew that for our 50th show in the series, we owed it to our loyal audience to reach for the absolute summit. In my world, that summit is Stephen Sondheim, the man who, more than anyone else on Earth, has influenced my music and lyrics, as well as my very understanding of what a writer is. I am awestruck that Steve accepted my invitation. I can’t say it’s a dream come true because I would have never dared to dream of anything as incredible as this.”
The one night only performance serves as a fundraiser for the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence which is an important cause for Brown, Sondheim, and Marc Kaplan, co-Founder of SubCulture. Tickets for the concert go on sale at 12:00 PM EST on Tuesday, May 21. To purchase tickets, and for more information on the event, please visit www.TheTownHall.org, or call 800 982 2787.
