Episode 38: Jason Robert Brown, Broadway Composer-Lyricist

On this episode of STAGE GROK, I talk with Broadway composer-lyricist Jason Robert Brown, about his writing process, his work in musical theatre and on the solo stage, and his composer-lyricist wife Georgia Stitt.

Jason will be in St. Louis for his solo show on March 15, 2019 at the Grandel Theatre, presented by The Ready Room.

Here is Jason's song "Hope," discussed in the interview.
