“There comes a point in the life of every artist, when you must ‘rise up’ and answer the call. Answering ‘the call’ can be lonely, scary and intimidating…but on the other side is the greatest gift ever…freedom of expression. It’s the very thing that makes us feel alive, and there can be no greater gift than that. Answering ‘the call’ is why we are here, so when it comes answer it right away…don’t let it go to voicemail”

Michael Washington Brown: Actor, Playwright & Storyteller

In 1994, he began studying scene classes in San Francisco and knew instantly what he wanted to do and be…an Actor. He gradually worked his way up the local scene and then moved to New York City to continue his journey and landed a variety of New York City productions.

Theatre has always been Brown’s passion, but deep down he always felt there was ‘more to give’.  Brown wanted to tell stories that were not being told.  It was at the Cherry Lane Theatre in 2012 when he saw a One Man Show and was inspired beyond anything he had previously experienced.  He realized in this moment what his ‘more to give’

“To write and share my own stories and perspectives”
