Brady Schwind

​BRADY SCHWIND is an award winning writer and director whose work has been seen in Los Angeles, New York and across the United States.

Brady directed a completely re-conceived production of CARRIE THE MUSICAL for the La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts and the historic Los Angeles Theatre downtown, which opened to rave reviews, and received 5 Ovation Award nominations, including Best Director.

As writer and director, Brady became the youngest person ever awarded New Yorkʼs prestigious Bistro Award, for the smash hit Off Broadway revue, THE SEASON: a comical satirizing of Broadway history. The show ran an unprecedented 24 weeks at the Triad Theatre, and was named the “Best Musical of the Year” by Playbill and Theatre Week magazines. In addition to helming readings and workshops of numerous new plays and musicals, Brady’s other regional directorial credits include THE GRAPES OF WRATH, Ionescoʼs THE BALD SOPRANO, RABBIT HOLE, the world premiere production of Anne Hulegardʼs ROSSETTIʼS CIRCLE, as well as the award winning Los Angeles regional premiere of the Tony Award winning musical, THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA.


As Artistic Director for The Neighborhood Playhouse, California, Brady helmed the West Coast premiere of Charles Buschʼs new comedy, OUR LEADING LADY, as well as acclaimed revivals of THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD, AMADEUS and CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF (Garland Award: Best Director of a Play). His direction of the Los Angeles premiere of the Jason Robert Brown / Alfred Uhry musical, PARADE was named the top theatrical event of the year by The Daily Breeze, and StageScene Los Angeles, and prompted Variety, The Los Angeles Times, LA Weekly, and Backstage to name him one of the most outstanding new theatrical influences to emerge in Southern California.

In addition to directing, Brady is the author of five screenplays, and is an in-demand script doctor and creative consultant to notable Hollywood production companies. His first original collection of stage plays, BEAUTIFUL INVENTION was a finalist for the Lila Acheson Julliard Fellowship and the OʼNeill Medal, and was published by Playhouse Press.

​Brady is a member of The Dramatists Guild and SDC: The Stage Directors and Choreographers Society. @bradyschwind

KAREN AKERS brings Legendary Style to The Beach CafeKaren Akers holds that rarest of interpretive gifts: she makes a song feel as if you are experiencing it for the first time. Reimagining Cole Porter's 'It's Alright By Me' as a haunted beguine, she begins tremulous; a would be lover breathless with anticipation - the eyes downcast - coy - but twinkling with desire even as her clarion soprano announces:

Late. A cool and rainy Manhattan night. A downstairs club. The singer: a blonde bombshell in a dress like a diamond champagne flute croons, in dulcet tones, 'Misty' from behind an electro-voice microphone. The jazz combo next to her nodding and following along in a dreamy sympatico.
