Tony Award-winning composer-lyricist Jason Robert Brown (Parade, The Bridges of Madison County) will join the faculty of Princeton University for the upcoming fall semester as part of the University's Atelier guest artist program.
The Atelier program invites professional artists to select a new project to develop and explore with Princeton students over the course of a semester.
Brown will workshop The Connector, his new musical with book writer Jonathan Marc Sherman and director Daisy Prince about an aspiring writer who has his first article published by The Connector, a magazine with a storied history.
All three artists will be on hand to develop the piece with students over the course of the semester. The musical will receive a large-scale reading/workshop presentation in association with The McCarter Theatre at the conclusion of the semester.
