ABOUT

(WHO I AM)

Hello there and welcome to my corner of the internet! Ok let's see, how to start this... I grew up in Buena Park, California, have been singing all my life, and have never considered it seriously until a couple years out of college during my time as an iOS Engineer at Mozilla/Firefox. An alumnus of U.C. Berkeley (and an ex-musical theater hater, mind you), I stumbled upon an MT audition class at the American Conservatory Theater in SF online and signed up just because I wanted to sing more. Then, that darned bug bit me quite hard, so I wanted to act more. And several gigs and classes and union membership cards later, I have fully been infected from the bite and am screaming from the rooftops about how much joy this lifestyle has given me. Something about software engineering left me unfulfilled, but I was being stubborn and didn't want to admit, until way later (post-infection), that my heart belonged to performing. I've had the great pleasure of working with San Francisco Playhouse, The Ground Floor / Berkeley Repertory Theatre, Center REPertory Company, 42nd Street Moon, and Marin Shakespeare Company among many others as well as some commercials/industrials in the Bay. I'm always looking to sharpen my skills, fiercely collaborate, and, most importantly, create with like-minded artists who care about telling stories that matter. I also still very much remember how to code so if you need coding interview help, hit me up.

HARVARD

FLOWER DRUM SONG (2002/HWANG VERSION)

PALO ALTO PLAYERS

DIRECTED BY LILY TUNG CRYSTAL

"But the real surprise is when...Wang decides in the third show to push aside a poorly acting, gay performer named Harvard (a hilariously bumbling but fabulous in airs Bryan Munar) to take his place in "Gliding Through My Memoree."

      - Eddie Reynolds, Talkin' Broadway

"Every principal character seems perfectly suited for his or her role...Bryan Munar is the fussy costumer, Harvard."

      - Judy Richter, For All Events

"Wang even sneaks himself into another by snagging the costume of Harvard (wonderfully funny Bryan Munar)."

      - David John Chávez, Bay Area Plays

PAUL SAN MARCO

A CHORUS LINE

NOVATO THEATER COMPANY

DIRECTED BY MARILYN IZDEBSKI

"Munar’s delivery of a monologue about Paul’s difficult youth and the life that led him to the stage is incredibly affecting."

      - Harry Duke, Pacific Sun

"Bryan Munar (nice singing and good solid acting as Paul)"

      - Flora Lynn Isaacson, For All Events

*Nominated for a San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle Award for Best Featured Actor in a Musical

EAMON

ONCE

42ND STREET MOON

DIRECTED BY CINDY GOLDFIELD

"Then there's the joyous and heartfelt music coming from the cast of 13, all of whom play instruments (guitar, fiddle, cello, mandolin, drums, tambourine) and sing and stomp their way through more than a dozen numbers. Their harmonies are lovely, making them the best chorus 42nd Street Moon has ever assembled."

     - Patrick Thomas, Talkin' Broadway

Featuring (L to R) Rob Ready, Colin Thomson, Matt Davis, Christina Owens, Devin Kelly, Emma Berman, Myra Chachkin, Ben Euphrat, Ariela Morgenstern

LUKE

DANCE NATION

SAN FRANCISCO PLAYHOUSE

DIRECTED BY BECCA WOLFF

"Bryan Munar is bashfully introverted as Luke, the only boy on the team."

     - Sam Hurwitt, The Mercury News

"In producing this play, the team at San Francisco Playhouse has shown exceptional professional bravery. Most theater companies pay lip service to challenging, original, and disturbing work but few rising companies with an established subscription base and fashionable acceptability would go this far out on a limb."

     - Charles Kruger, Theatrestorm
