My View: Jason Robert Brown-Shoshana Bean and Strings Fill 54 Below With Music

Jason Robert Brown brought his music, lyrics, vocals, fearless pianistic virtuosity, along with Shoshana Bean and a string section to 54 Below last night.  Suffice to say an overflow audience in Broadway’s supper club was treated  to an extraordinary evening of great music and JBR wit.  It was a  Sunday night as the composer of currently running on Broadway Mr. Saturday Night and crew thrilled a SRO crowd at 54 Below.
