SubCulture and Jason Robert Brown will commemorate the 50th performance in their Artist-in-Residence series by presenting an evening of songs and stories with Brown and Stephen Sondheim at Town Hall on Monday, June 24, at 8pm. Tony Award winner Katrina Lenk will join them as they perform their songs in 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," Brown said in a statement. "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."

All proceeds from the evening will be donated to the anti-gun violence organization Brady.
