CAAlogo_rBrown is also the composer, lyricist, and book writer of the musical The Last Five Years, adapted into the Richard LaGravanese-directed film that stars Anna Kendrick, and won the 1999 Tony Award for Best Score for Parade. While four Tony noms couldn’t save Bridges from posting a closing notice, Brown’s next up with the Broadway musical version of Honeymoon In Vegas which will star Tony Danza. He had been repped by WME, which proves that while most of the ferocious competition for clients between the two agencies takes place in Hollywood, New York is also a battleground. Brown continues to be lawyered by Mark Sendroff of Sendroff & Baruch, LLP.
