About Brian…

Growing up, Brian was attracted to comedy – constantly watching re-runs of The Carol Burnett Show.  Later on, he discovered the humor of Victor Borge, Bill Cosby, Jonathan Winters, Monty Python, Tom Lehrer, Stephen Fry and Hugh Laurie, Mike Nichols and Elaine May. These comedy greats helped him develop an impeccable sense of timing and intuition about what was inherently funny, and how to make an ordinary situation spiral into hilarious un-reality.

Although comedy comes naturally to him, these skills also help him present incredible dramatic performances.  He can walk the thin line to elicit laughter from the audience in one moment, then pull gasps, or tears from them the very next.

ABOUT ME & WHAT I LOVE

I really enjoy making people laugh.  I’ve been portraying characters on stage for over 14 years, and I enjoy every moment of it! Nothing inspires me more than finding new ways to make audiences laugh, think and appreciate the two hours they just sat through.  I also enjoy meeting fans after the shows – and yes, we sign autographs!

I ENJOY BEING ON STAGE, WORKING LIGHTS & SOUND, CREATING PROPS AND COSTUMES, AND BEING AROUND OTHER GREAT ACTORS

IF YOU THINK I'D BE A GOOD FIT FOR YOUR NEXT PROJECT, EMAIL ME AND LET'S GET STARTED!

WHAT THE REVIEWERS SAY

TUCSON WEEKLY

ONCE UPON A MATTRESS

 “…remarkably manages not to come off as milquetoast as Dauntless; he’s charming and boyish, but not childish, and not the dud that this character can make of actors.”

TUCSON WEEKLY

ALL IN THE TIMING

for All In The Timing: “Construction worker, played beautifully by Brian Scott Hale. …My favorite performances were by … Hale as (possibly) the adult Lindbergh baby.”

 

TUCSON WEEKLY

SWEET CHARITY

 “… is able to depict both vulnerability and over-the-top hysteria as Charity’s fiancé, Oscar.”

THE ODD COUPLE, FEMALE VERSION

TUCSON WEEKLY

“…  this production … makes the most of the scene in which the Spanish brothers who live upstairs come to dine with Florence and Olive. Dennis Gallardo as Manolo, and Brian Scott Hale as Jesus, are simply wonderful, utterly believable and unselfconsciously hilarious. They are immigrants from Barcelona, and their native Castilian Spanish is always on a collision course with the colloquial parlance of the New Yorkers. This is richly comic stuff, and these guys nail it..”

GREEN VALLEY NEWS & SUN

BACK TO THE PAST

 “…Sharing their talents with an otherwise veteran cast were … Brian Hale as Principal Ledbetter. There is no doubt that the director looks for actors known as triple threats, that is those who can act, sing and dance.”
