Brian Lowdermilk is a Jewish American musical theater composer and lyricist.


Brian Lowdermilk is a composer and lyricist for musicals. He is also a music director, arranger, vocal coach, and pianist.

Lowdermilk’s most recent musicals have been collaborations with Kait Kerrigan. Their collaborations include The Woman Upstairs, The Unauthorized Autobiography of Samantha Brown (with Zach Altman) and Wrong Number. Lowdermilk and Kerrigan wrote TheaterworksUSA's adaptation of Henry and Mudge, which premiered Off-Broadway in 2006 at the Lucille Lortel Theatre.[1] In one review of that piece, Lowdermilk and Kerrigan were called "perhaps the most important young writers in musical theatre today."[2]

Lowdermilk has received a Richard Rodgers Staged Reading Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters[3], an Alan Menken scholarship award from the Steinhardt School of Education at New York University[4], and a Jonathan Larson Memorial Fellowship at the Dramatists Guild.

A fully staged production of The Woman Upstairs is in talks to be presented at the University of the Arts, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, eventually.
