Jeff Bowen BIO

Jeff Bowen is a multi-talented performer who has made a name for himself in the world of theater, film, and television. Born on August 30, 1971, in Baltimore, Maryland, Jeff grew up with a passion for the arts. He attended college at Stetson University in Florida, where he studied theater and music.


After college, Jeff moved to New York City to pursue a career in the arts. He worked odd jobs to make ends meet while auditioning for various productions. In 1999, Jeff met Hunter Bell, and the two began collaborating on a musical called "Title of Show." The show was a hit and premiered at the New York Musical Theatre Festival in 2004.
"Title of Show" was a meta-musical about two struggling writers trying to create a musical to submit to the New York Musical Theatre Festival. The show was a critical and commercial success, and it was eventually picked up for a Broadway run in 2008. Jeff and Hunter starred in the show, and Jeff also served as the show's composer and lyricist.
After the success of "Title of Show," Jeff continued to work in the theater world. He wrote the music and lyrics for the off-Broadway musical "Now. Here. This." with Hunter Bell and the cast of "Title of Show." The show premiered in 2012 at the Vineyard Theatre.
In addition to his work in theater, Jeff has also made appearances in film and television. He had a small role in the 2008 film "The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning" and appeared in the TV series "The Big C" in 2012.
Jeff has also worked in the music industry. He wrote the music and lyrics for the song "A Way Back to Then," which was featured in "Title of Show" and has since become a popular audition song for musical theater performers. He has also written music for various other projects, including the off-Broadway musical "Now. Here. This."
Most recently, Jeff has been working on a new musical called "Other World." The show is a collaboration with Ann McNamee and is described as a "sci-fi adventure musical." The show had a workshop production in 2018 and is currently in development.
