Brad Oscar is an American actor.

Biography

Born in Washington D.C., he studied at the Boston University College of Fine Arts and became a musical theatre, gaining particular recognition (and a Tony Award nomination) for playing Franz Liebkind in The Producers. Though he was one of two principal cast members who did not reprise their role for the film adaptation, he did make a cameo as a taxi driver.

Oscar also made a number of screen appearances, including for Law and Order and Ghost Town. In 2015, he received a second Tony nomination for Something Rotten!

Singing

A frequent contributor to the musical theatre stage, Oscar made his debut in the chorus of Aspects of Love, before playing multiple roles in Jekyll & Hyde, including Lord Savage in the tour and Sir Archibald Proops in the original Broadway cast. He then went on to play Franz Liebkind in the original Broadway cast of The Producers.

Oscar would often appear in concert versions of musicals, including On the Twentieth Century and Knickerbocker Holiday, and played Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof. He also appeared in the original casts of Nice Work If You Can Get It, Big Fish (as Amos Calloway) and Something Rotten!
