Our Land Acknowledgment SpeakEasy Stage Company is built on the power of storytelling and the transformative way the arts can be used to amplify voices of those historically silenced. In that spirit, we would like to acknowledge that SpeakEasy Stage and the Calderwood Pavilion, which we call our artistic home, reside on the ancestral and unceded lands of the Massachusett people, whose name was appropriated by this Commonwealth. We pay respect to the Massachusett elders past and present and recognize the truth of violence perpetrated in the name of this country. We commit to educating ourselves about the stories of indigenous people and to uplift the voices of those who have been left out of the conversation. We encourage you to learn more about the Massachusett people, their history and their living traditions at massachusetttribe.org. Learn more about what a land acknowledgement is and find more resources on our website.

His songs, including the cabaret standard “Stars and the Moon,” have been performed and recorded by Ariana Grande, Audra McDonald, Kristin Chenoweth, Billy Porter, Betty Buckley, Renée Fleming, Jon Hendricks, and many others, and his song “Someone to Fall Back On” was featured in the film, Bandslam. For the musical Prince of Broadway, a celebration of the career of his mentor Harold Prince, Mr. Brown served as the musical supervisor and arranger. Other New York credits as conductor and arranger include Urban Cowboy the Musical; Dinah Was; When Pigs Fly; William Finn’s A New Brain; the 1992 tribute to Stephen Sondheim at Carnegie Hall (recorded by RCA Victor); Yoko Ono’s New York Rock; and Michael John LaChiusa’s The Petrified Prince. Mr. Brown has also conducted and created arrangements and orchestrations for Liza Minnelli, John Pizzarelli, and Michael Feinstein, among many others. As a soloist, or with his band The Caucasian Rhythm Kings, Mr. Brown has performed concerts around the world.  In addition, he spent ten years teaching at the USC School of Dramatic Arts, and has also taught at Harvard University, Princeton University, and Emerson College. Mr. Brown studied composition at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, N.Y., with Samuel Adler, Christopher Rouse, and Joseph Schwantner.  He lives with his wife, composer Georgia Stitt, and their daughters in New York City.  He is a proud member of the Dramatists Guild and the American Federation of Musicians Local 802. To learn more, visit his website.
