Nick J. Browne: Director, Educator, Producer.
Hello, I am Nick Browne. I am a theater director, educator, and producer from St. Mary’s County Maryland. I hold an MFA in Directing from Brooklyn College. While attending BC I was honored to serve as a graduate teaching fellow investing in the next generation of art makers and rule breakers, and was the recipient of the 2021 Shubert Foundation Scholarship, and 2021 Deans List. I believe in theatre's unique power to meditate on traumatic human experiences as a means to offer healing through collective joy and radical togetherness. I am fascinated by the audience/ actor relationship and seek to continually reimagine how we can demolish the 4th wall to embrace the ephemeral communities that are created in our theatrical spaces. My productions often occur outside the grounds of a theater or reimagine how we present inside them. I believe all theatre is immersive, it's our job to dig into each unique play we touch to understand how. I love showcasing the work of bold new playwrights and aim to provide theater that challenges, lightens, and inspires.
I received my BFA in Acting from Point Park University in 2013, where I studied extensively in directing and graduated with honors. During my time At PPU I co-founded Pinnacle Productions a student-run experimental theatre company which still exists today. I have studied with LAByrinth Theater Company, SITI Theater Company, New York Theater Workshop and this summer will I be traveling to Umbria, Italy to attend LA MAMA's 2022 International Directors Symposium. I have directed and produced shows off-off Broadway and internationally. I seek to elevate the artform by committing to a values centered approach and creating spaces that are nurturing for artists of all disciplines.
