Shoshana Bean and Jason Robert Brown to Lead The Last Five Years Concert
Brown will direct his musical for a one-night-only performance.
Shoshana Bean and Jason Robert Brown will star as Cathy and Jamie in Second Stage Theater's upcoming Musical Mondays concert production of The Last Five Years, set to take place on Monday, March 4. Brown, the show's creator, will also serve as director.
"Believe it or not, the first time I heard Shoshana Bean sing was actually when she auditioned for the original production of The Last Five Years in 2001, and what I wrote down that day is still true: ‘Oh my God, can this girl sing,'" Brown said in a statement. "Shoshana and I started performing concerts together in 2007 and it has been clear from our very first show that she could make my music soar and dive in ways no other singer can. It was an amazing stroke of luck that Shoshana was available to lead the company of Songs for a New World last summer at City Center, and hearing her bring that score to life only made me ache for more collaborations with her."
Part of Second Stage's Musical Mondays series, the concert will feature Brown's full orchestrations and his favorite musicians.
