David Brown

Producer
( b. Jul 28, 1916 New York, New York, USA - d. Feb 01, 2010 New York, New York, USA ) Male
Mr. Brown’s stage credits came late in his career. Among them, on Broadway he produced “Tru,” a one-actor play about Truman Capote starring Robert Morse, and the musicals “Sweet Smell of Success” (2002), based on the Hollywood film about a press agent and a powerful columnist, and “Dirty Rotten Scoundrels” (2005), adapted from a movie with Steve Martin.
Mr. Brown became involved in the theater serendipitously. He had just finished making “The Verdict” and was interested in doing another courtroom film when an agent sent him “A Few Good Men,” a play about a military trial by a young, unknown playwright, Aaron Sorkin. Mr. Brown tried to buy the film rights, but Mr. Sorkin demurred, saying that that would make the stage rights less attractive for another producer. So Mr. Brown bought the stage rights, too.
The play, which starred Tom Hulce, opened in November 1989 and ran for nearly 500 performances.
