    Guest - Cassidy Brown - Actor

    Guest - Cassidy Brown - Actor

    Today, I am delighted to have Cassidy Brown as my guest. He is a highly acclaimed actor based in San Francisco and has graced the stages of various theaters throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, including Berkeley Rep, SF Playhouse, Theatreworks, and many more. Besides his acting career, Cassidy is also a co-host of the podcast "All the Answers," which delves into the fascinating connection between performing arts and spirituality.
    Currently, Cassidy is busy rehearsing for the "Tea Party," a riveting play by Gordon Dahlquist, which is being directed by the talented Erin Merritt. In this 90-minute comedy thriller, "Tea Party," Cassidy along with the rest of the cast portray the logical consequences of violent political rhetoric in America's near future. With its taut and sophisticated storyline, "Tea Party" promises to be an enthralling and thought-provoking theatrical experience.
