Jason Robert Brown Wins Outer Critics Circle Award for The Bridges of Madison County

Filed under: Performing Arts — Dr. Christopher Blackwell @ 00:45

medium_JRB Composer Jason Robert Brown has won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Original Score for his work in writing the lush and absolutely gorgeous score for the musical The Bridges of Madison County. The awards were announced May 12th. Brown bested other composers within the category, including the composers of the musicals Aladdin, Fun Home, A Gentlemen’s Guide to Love and Murder, and If/Then. Unfortunately, Bridges‘ lead star Kelli O’Hara lost the award for Outstanding Actress in a Musical to Audra McDonald in Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar & Grill. The Bridges of Madison County closes this Sunday at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Broadway; but a national tour of the show is set to embark in 2015. Congratulations to Jason Robert Brown!
