The livestream concerts we are getting bestowed upon us are truly a gift. Tonight is going to be another one to set a 7 ring alarm for - Jason Robert Brown's SubCulture Residency Concert. Tonight's concert at 8:30PM EST is a benefit for the staff of SubCulture and its musicians during this pandemic. Click here to donate.
JRB has been hosting these musical evenings at the incredible SubCulture on Bleecker Street monthly but for April, he is holding this concert online. These concerts often have a Broadway headliner or two and this month does not disappoint. We are not only getting a Jason Robert Brown concert featuring the divine Shoshana Bean but he is also welcoming Broadway baby turned mega super pop star Ariana Grande.
Ariana's connection to Jason Robert Brown goes back over a decade. Before the television shows and the albums we can't stop repeating, Ariana got her start on the Great White Way in Jason Robert Brown's 13 The Musical in 2008. On her 2016 Dangerous Woman deluxe album version from Target, you'll find a track called "Jason's Song" that is fire.
To celebrate this special livestream (which can be viewed on Vimeo or Facebook), we are looking back at Ariana's other musical theatre performances. We found some gems including when Ari was Annie and of course the recent Disney Singalong Hercules tune that we ARE in love with.
