EPISODE #158: STEPHEN BROWER – IN THIS EPISODE:
On Fresh is the Word, we like to deliver wisdom through great stories from the minds of bright creatives of pop culture. Through those stories, we like to dissect the journey of our guests and present actionable lessons and advice for our listeners no matter what career or avenue of artistry they pursue.
The guest for this episode is Stephen Brower, who is currently playing the role of “Dmitry” on the touring production of Anastasia: The New Broadway Musical. The musical is described as: “This dazzling show transports us from the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, as a brave young woman sets out to discover the mystery of her past. Pursued by a ruthless Soviet officer determined to silence her, Anya enlists the aid of a dashing conman and a lovable ex-aristocrat. Together, they embark on an epic adventure to help her find home, love, and family.”
During our chat, we talked about how he ended up getting the role in Anastasia, the auditioning process, staying healthy on the road, his upbringing in theater and how it molded his life, and about what makes Anastasia a special story.
Anastasia will make its Detroit debut at the Fisher Theatre (more info: broadwayindetroit.com) starting Tuesday, June 11th through Sunday, June 23th, before upcoming tours in Grand Rapids, MI (6/25-6/30), Milwaukee, WI (7/23-7/28), and Madison, WI (7/30-8/04).
