Brady Schwind Biography

Brady Schwind is an award winning writer, director and performer, whose work has been seen in Los Angeles, New York and across the United States.

As writer and director, Brady became the youngest person ever awarded New York’s 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 ‚ÄúBest Musical of the Year‚ÄĚ by Playbill and Theatre Week magazines.

Other regional directorial credits include THE GRAPES OF WRATH, Ionesco’s THE BALD SOPRANO, the world premiere production of Anne Hulegard’s ROSSETTI’S CIRCLE, and 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 Busch’s new comedy, OUR LEADING LADY, as well as acclaimed
revivals of THE MYSTERY OF EDWIN DROOD, AMADEUS and CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF.

His direction of the Los Angeles premiere of the Jason Robert Brown / Alfred Uhry musical, PARADE was named the top theatrical event of 2008 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 directorial 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 O’Neill Medal, and was published by Playhouse Press .

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