Jason Robert Brown on the Creation and Premiere of His New Song for Prince of Broadway
Brown is the composer-lyricist of "Wait 'Til You See What's Next."
When the legendary director/producer Hal Prince asks you to write a song for his latest musical, you don't say no, no matter how intimidating the task. And for Jason Robert Brown, the three-time Tony winner behind Parade and The Bridges of Madison County, the order was pretty intimidating. For the tune that was going to close out Prince's new career-bio show Prince of Broadway, Brown had to write a number that topped tunes from Sweeney Todd, Fiddler on the Roof, and Show Boat. How'd he do? Just wait 'til you see what's next.
