“My approach has always been using theater and teaching the craft of acting to help young people make discoveries about themselves that would build confidence, self-esteem, such that they can go out and be successful in whatever they’re called to do in life,” Mr. Brown said in an actor profile published by the Lantern Theatre Company. “It’s about finding your voice, loving your body, and understanding the importance of empathy and teaching empathy. I think acting is one of the best crafts to be able to teach that.” Read more about Mr. Brown and his role in The Royale in the original profile.
