Brad Ogden


Brad is a Brooklyn, New York-based theatre director who approaches all work like it's new. He is interested in reimagining time-tested stories, developing new work, and making ensemble-driven theatre from scratch. He is enthusiastic about dramaturgy and driven by theatre's ability to facilitate discourse and catalyze social change.

Brad's freelance work as a director has been called "daring" and "a power spectacle." His productions have been presented by a range of institutions, universities, and fringe festivals — including the Ogunquit Playhouse, Samuel French, Brooklyn Acting Lab, Philadelphia Young Playwrights, and the Creekside Players. He holds a BFA in Theatre, with a concentration in Directing, from University of the Arts.

Brad is a proud member of Actors' Equity Association. He shares a Barrymore Award for Outstanding Ensemble in a Play with the cast of Passage Theatre Company's world premiere of Little Rock. Brad has been seen onstage at the Papermill Playhouse, Queens Theatre in the Park, the Andy Griffith Playhouse, Carolina Theatre of Durham, and the Prague Fringe Festival in the Czech Republic.
