Interview / Video Arts for the Health of It - Broadway Is Back with Bradley Dean
What have the last 16 months been like for Broadway? Bradley Dean plays Monsieur Andre in the Broadway production of Phantom of the Opera and he's here talking not only talk about the exciting return of Broadway but the emotional toll COVID-19 has had on him, how he kept creative, and his love of pancakes.
Bradley talks about his passion for vocal technique and his career as an actor and a singer. He shares what some of his biggest challenges have been so far, discusses the ups and downs of show business and tells a story that proves why you should never tell a child "you sing too loud".
The cast features Tony Award-winning Broadway stars Santino Fontana and Debbie Gravitte, as well as Laura Osnes, Jackie Hoffman, Michael McCormick, Bradley Dean and Raymond Bokhour.
The 52nd Street Project is nearing the conclusion of its first-ever virtual gala featuring performances by stars of stage and screen Annaleigh Ashford & Joe Tapper; Marinda Anderson & Adrienne C. Moore; Bradley Dean, Jon-Michael Reese & Heath Saunders; and more.
"I get a chill every night when I hear the twenty-five-piece orchestra. You just try to live up to the authors' intent and help keep the original vision. It feels awesome to be in something you know is not going anywhere. I've worked with this team before having done Evita at least nine times and singing [Andrew Lloyd Webber] feels like putting on your favorite pair of jeans."
A pair of new principal cast members step into the Broadway production of The Phantom of the Opera on September 11. John Riddle takes over as Raoul and Bradley Dean assumes the role of Monsieur André.
"I remind myself all the time how fortunate I am. I’ve gotten really close to a lot of things, to originating a great role, and each time it’s fallen through. That’s the difference between a star and not. I just keep showing up, singing my face off and tearing off my clothes.”
Just days before they ended their epic run at City Center cast members brought all the drama, passion and magic that the show embodies to the Broadway Sessions stage. Enjoy highlights from performances by Tony winner Lena Hall, Bradley Dean, Danielle Steers, Adam Kemmerer, Avionce Hoyles, Andres Quintero, Jessica Jaunich, Tiernan Tunnicliffe, and Nick Martinez.
Even though we're supposed to be rooting for the kids, it's the adults who steal the show in this one, as Dean, playing corporate mogul Falco, who's struggling with sensitivity issues, and Lena Hall, as his sarcastically-humored and sexually/emotionally frustrated wife, Sloane, bicker and strut with campy comedics when they're not displaying explosive pipes with blunt show-biz abandon while power-ballading the hell out of New York City Center.
The cast will include Antoinette Comer, Bradley Dean, Sophie Hearn, Charlotte Perry Maltby, Livvy Marcus, Katherine McLaughlin, Mamie Parris, Mackenzie Warren, and Charlotte Mary Wen.
Dean's brooding presence and powerful voice make him a perfect audience surrogate, opening and closing the show with his musings on the ship he created and the fate it suffered.
How can you have a show about Russia without the KGB and CIA? You can't. Bradley Dean (KGB) and Sean Allan Krill (CIA) excel in these entertaining roles.
