This chapter examines the work of Jason Robert Brown. It starts with an extended commentary of his career, and then provides details on productions, with data and song information. Brown embraced music as a child, apparently to the exclusion of most other endeavors. He attended the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, but withdrew after two years and moved to New York City at the age of twenty. While working at a piano bar in Greenwich Village, Brown was discovered—or, more accurately, recognized as being talented—by Daisy Prince, who quickly brought him into her family circle. The pair went to work in 1992 on a revue of Brown’s songs.

Keywords:   Jason Robert Brown, composers, Eastman School of Music, musical theater, New York, Daisy Price
