Alex Brightman is an American actor, singer, and writer. He is known for his work in the musical adaptation of School of Rock and Beetlejuice the Musical. Both roles earned him nominations for the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical in 2016 and 2019 respectively.

The heart of Brightman’s career lies in his theatrical performances, specifically on the grand stages of Broadway. His breakthrough performance was as Dewey Finn in the 2015 musical “School of Rock,” adapted from the 2003 film of the same name. Brightman’s infectious energy and vocal prowess earned him significant recognition in the theatre world. In 2019, he took on the titular role in “Beetlejuice,” a wildly successful musical adaptation of Tim Burton‘s film.

Brightman’s partnerships with Broadway powerhouses like Andrew Lloyd Webber, who composed “School of Rock,” and Eddie Perfect, the composer of “Beetlejuice,” have been instrumental in shaping his path. Fellow cast members such as Sophia Anne Caruso, Kerry Butler, and Rob McClure also play vital roles in creating unforgettable stage chemistry. Additionally, he has worked with directors Laurence Connor, Alex Timbers, and Broadway legend, Harold Prince. Brightman’s collaborative efforts extend beyond Broadway; he co-wrote the musical “Everything in its Place: The Life and Slimes of Marc Summers” with Drew Gasparini, and his television appearances often feature collaborative performances, as seen on “The Good Fight” with Christine Baranski, or “Important Things with Demetri Martin.”

Recognition of Brightman’s talent is abundant, though never referred to as mere “accolades.” He has been nominated for the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical twice, first for “School of Rock” in 2016, and then for “Beetlejuice” in 2019. These nominations validate his exceptional abilities in musical theatre and highlight his impressive character work. Additionally, the cast recording for “Beetlejuice,” featuring Brightman’s unmistakable vocals, was nominated for the 2020 Grammy Award for Best Musical Theater Album.
