#99 Revolutionizing Live Theatre with CAGES Co-Creators CJ Baran & Benjamin Romans

• 53 min

Today’s guests are the epitome of what this podcast is all about: CREATIVE REVOLUTIONARY SUPERSTARS… who are just as hard on themselves as the rest of us! CJ Baran & Benjamin Romans created the show CAGES – an indescribable “genre-busting game changer” (LA Times) that left audiences in awe at its premiere… MYSELF INCLUDED! Masterfully weaving state-of-the-art video and animation with live performance and original songs that pulse with an addictive pop energy, CAGES pulls out all the stops to conjure a rock opera musical for the modern age.  These two creative overachievers wrote the story, the music, directed, and choreographed the piece – CJ even played the lead!  And just like any creative expression, the show started as an itty-bitty baby idea that paid off big time when they decided they would never settle for less than the art they want to see. ← not easy when you are creating a dystopian, B&W gothic world in a live, stage performance! When I invited CJ to the show, he wrote: My entire life has been living in the void between creating art that I believe will move people while also trying to make a living at it. ← perhaps the most Brian Breaks Character thing anyone has ever said! I couldn’t be more delighted to share this episode with you: I just know you’ll love hearing from these two fiercely committed, honest, and authentic artists who make FUTURE THEATRE.   Thank you for tuning in to this episode of Brian Breaks Character!   If you loved this episode, please subscribe and leave an honest review.
