Name and age: Kevin Brown, 45
Occupation: Interior designer and theatrical set designer
Spotted at: Uptown Players/Kalita Humphreys Theater
This Garland native is a registered interior designer who runs his own business, Studio Brown Designs. Although he works in residential, commercial and holiday décor, you’d probably best recognize his work as a set designer/dresser at local theaters.
All the world’s a stage: Kevin has always had an interest in theater and has seen hundreds of shows starting back to his childhood. In the summer of 2011, he dressed the set of Victor/Victoria at Uptown Players with his good friend Charla Blake, and he was hooked.
Two years later — after dressing more sets for Uptown — he finally designed his first set for Del Shores’ Yellow. Since then, his designs have been seen at Musical Theater of Denton, OnStage in Bedford, Rover Dramawerks, Runway Theatre, and MainStage Irving Las Colinas.
His most recent set design was for the recently-closed The Nance, which he believes to be his best work to date.
Outside of the design life he enjoys his friends, family and his six furry children.
