WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

CAP 21, now in its 18th year of creating new work and developing new talent as America's Musical Theatre Conservatory and Theatre Company, honors award-winning composers and lyricists Jason Robert Brown and George Stitt with its annual all-star benefit concert. Daisy Prince, who helmed the acclaimed Off-Broadway productions of Mr. Brown's The Last Five Years and Songs for a New World, directs this evening of songs by the married composers. Performers include three-time Tony nominee Kelli O'Hara (The Light in the Piazza, The Pajama Game, South Pacific); two-time Tony nominee Brian d'Arcy James (Shrek the Musical, Sweet Smell of Success); Aisha De Haas (Caroline or Change, Roadshow); Christopher Jackson (In the Heights, The Lion King); Lauren Kennedy (Spamalot, Side Show), Jessica Molaskey (Parade, A Man of No Importance, Tommy), and others to be announced. The concert also features performances by Jason Robert Brown and Georgia Stitt, accompanied by a 9-piece band and a 30-voice chorus, under the musical direction of Thomas Murray. Matthew Morrison, one of the stars of the hit FOX-TV series Glee whose Broadway credits include Hairspray, South Pacific, and The Light in the Piazza, will be awarded the first-ever CAP21 Distinguished Alumni Award via a special video appearance.
