Lyricist Dean Bryant joins us in The Cabaret Room
Dean Bryant met Mathew Frank while studying Musical Theatre at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. Their first musical, Prodigal, won the Green Room Award for Best Original Score, and was the first Australian musical produced off-Broadway, at the York Theatre, in 2002. Prodigal returns to fortyfivedownstairs in January as a Midsumma Premier Event. Other compositions include Virgins: A Musical Threesome, and Once We Lived Here.
Dean will join us in The Cabaret Room to talk about his life and career to date. Dean has worked as the Worldwide Associate Director of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert and created an It Gets Better film. We'll also play some Frank Sinatra and Paul Capsis tracks.
