In America, Warner Brown’s musical Flickers were first seen at Broadway’s Circle-in-the Square Theatre. He wrote the screenplay Nijinsky for Regent Entertainment in L.A. and the ‘new Cole Porter musical’ The Black and White Ball.
In Europe, Warner’s credits include Musical of the Year, starring Denis Quilley, Al Jarreau and Sir Peter Ustinov, and book and lyrics for Garbo – the Musical, with music by rock legend Jim Steinman and Michael Reed. In the U.K., Warner’s work includes the plays Laughing Dove, Scandal and The Prospero Suite, directed by John Doyle; the all-star production of Cinderella at the London Palladium and the musicals Six For Gold, The House on the Corner and The Biograph Girl, with composer David Heneker.
Heneker and Brown were the subjects of the BBC documentary The Making of a Musical. For Gillian Lynne, at the request of Diana, Princess of Wales, Warner wrote Dance For Life at London’s Her Majesty’s Theatre. His new version of the classic show Half A Sixpence is currently on a national tour.
Among his numerous credits for the BBC, Warner was Script Associate of the Classic Musicals series, directing such artists as Tyne Daly, Barbara Cook, Anthony Newley and Julia Migenes.
