Hello all,

We are just coming down from this past Saturday’s one-night only performance by Jason Robert Brown. The multiple Tony Award-winning composer of our upcoming musical The Bridges of Madison County shared funny and personal stories about his career and life. (Read this RAVE) Jason also sang from his brand new CD How We React and How We Recover. The album marks his departure from traditional theatre songs and is a thoughtful, impassioned, response to the issues of our time. "The Sandy Hook school shooting just broke me," said Brown, whose 9-year-old daughter was in the audience, and his “A Song About Your Gun” drew sustained emotional applause. Also in the audiences were scores of young fans, who met the composer after the show, as he signed CDs and sheet music for over an hour.

My personal highlight was when the stars from PTC’s production, Sarah Gliko and Gregg Goodbrod, joined Jason on stage. The pair performed two major songs from The Bridges of Madison County, offering a preview of what is to come when the show starts performances February 8th.  If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, I highly suggest you run, don’t walk! Staff is waiting to help you experience the rush of this emotionally-charged musical, so call call the box office at 215-985-0420 or grab tickets here.

We want to do more of these events, to bring you one-of-a-kind experiences with the most influential and interesting theatre artists of our time.  Because I’d like to think that theatre is not, in fact, a luxury. We keep prices affordable (starting at $2 for qualifying patrons - yes you read that right) so that anyone who wants to experience a play can come and be part of the story...can listen to and watch the creative minds that are shaping the arts in our time.

Consider it self-care.

If you want to support more special events like An Evening with Jason Robert Brown, and missed the opportunity to make a gift to PTC during the holidays, we hope you will consider making a tax-deductible contribution NOW. We believe in second chances and, well, we can’t do it without you. ;-)

See you soon,


Call the box office at 215-985-0420 to get your tickets for The Bridges of Madison County, or visit our website.  There are still two-show subscription packages available for the remainder of our season.  We are BACK for more in 2019!
