ABOUT BRP

Blair Russell Productions, LLC (BRP) goes beyond the confines of traditional theatrical production. Driven by a desire to put art first, we consistently create opportunities for emerging artists, aiming to broaden the scope of who gets to make theater and who gets to consume it. We focus on finding innovative financial frameworks, following non-traditional development paths, and harnessing the latest in technological advancements.

Founded by Blair Russell in 2018, BRP's journey in the theatrical landscape has been marked by a commitment to challenging the status quo. With every production, we prioritize making theatre accessible, ensuring that each story resonates deeply and widely.

Blair Russell Productions continues to relentlessly support artists who are reimagining the idea of contemporary theatre. Our mission is unwavering: to bring bold narratives to diverse audiences while showcasing the impact and potential of modern storytelling.
