“Bradley J. Behrmann is unnervingly smooth and sympathetic as rising movie star Mitchell [… ] a near lethal combination of insecurity, bravado, and alcohol, yet he manages an endearing quality.”
-Tina Farmer, KDHX
“Behrmann gives Mitchell an endearing earnestness.”
-Dennis Brown, Riverfront Times
“Bradley J. Behrmann is a suitable foil for Alverson as the laid-back, lovelorn Mitchell, particularly affecting when he unearths the loneliness inherent in Mitchell’s aching soul.”
-Mark Bretz, Ladue News
“Throughout, Bradley J. Behrmann is perfect as the all-too-eager 1913-style reporter Britt Craig, enthusiastically fanning the flames of interest in the case.”

The new generation of musical theatre…
Bradley J. Behrmann is an actor, educator, and writer who splits his time between New York City, San Diego, St. Louis, and Amarillo. Hailing from Belleville, IL, he earned a B.Mus. in Music Education from Lawrence University and a MFA in Musical Theatre from San Diego State University.
Musicals—along with Shakespearean and classical works—are Bradley’s bread and butter. He brings an unparalleled diversity of skills as an actor, music director, director, lyricist, composer, teacher, coach, and scholar.
As an actor, Bradley made his Off-Broadway debut in March 2018 as Le Bret in Cyrano de Bergerac. Regional favorites include Charles Clark in Titanic (Moonlight), Brit Craig in Parade (R-S Theatrics), Dr. Craven in The Secret Garden (Overdue), and Sebastian in The Tempest (St. Louis Shakespeare).
Behind the table, Bradley has music directed for a variety of regional and educational productions. He has directed for Youth Sing Praise, a week-long program for high school students combining theatre within a faith-based retreat, and most recently at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, TX, where he has served as Assistant Professor of Musical Theatre since 2018. Creative credits there include Musical of Musicals: The Musical, Spring Awakening, Songs For a New World, and The Theory of Relativity.
An activist for fine arts education at all levels, Bradley is a teaching artist at La Jolla Playhouse and has taught at the Milwaukee Repertory Theater, San Diego State University, Southwest Illinois College, and Missouri Baptist University. He served as Director of Music at Notre Dame High School in St. Louis 2005-2014.
He is eager to be on the front lines of creating new works of American musical theatre. His first original musical—Just Pretend—is an adaptation of the Book of Esther created with writing partner Orin Johnson; it premiered in June 2015.
