Jason Moore is dead – Obituary 2021 – cause of death

The sudden passing of Jason Moore is a terribly sad day for me. He was the finest bass player on the planet and the best human who ever lived. I had the honor of playing with him a couple times. Pretty shook up.

Jason Moore was born in Fayetteville, Arkansas and studied at Northwestern University. Moore’s Broadway career began as the resident director of “Les Miserables” at the Empire Theater, during its initial operation. He is the son of Fayetteville District Judge Rudy Moore.

In March 2003, Moore directed the musical “Q Avenue”, which opened on Broadway outside the Vineyard Theatre, and then moved to the John King Theatre on Broadway in July 2003.

His director was nominated for the 2004 Tony Award. Moore also directed the production of this musical and its national tour in Las Vegas and London. Moore directed the 2005 Broadway revival of Steel Mulan and Shrek musicals, starring Brian Darcy James and Sutton Foster, which opened on Broadway in 2008. He directed Jerry Springer’s concert at Carnegie Hall in January 2008.

Moore, Jeff Whitty, Jake Shears and John “JJ” Garden collaborated to produce a new musical based on the urban story of Armistead Maupin. The musical premiered in May 2011 at the American Conservatory of Music Theater in San Francisco, California, and lasted until July 2011.

On television, Moore directed the series of “Dawson Creek”, “A Tree Mountain”, “Everwood” and “Brothers and Sisters”. As a writer, Moore worked with Paul Fitzgerald to adapt the novel The Floatplane Notebooks by Clyde Edgerton.

The play was staged at the New Theatre Festival of the Charlotte Repertory Company in North Carolina in 1996, and was fully staged in 1998.In 2012, Moore completed his film directorial debut with “Pitch Perfect”, starring Anna Kendrick and Brittany Snow.
