The Greg Brady Project

Welcome to the official Barry Williams' blog

My friends call me Barry. From time to time I also hear the name Greg. Yeah, as in Greg Brady. The Brady Bunch represents a fun time in my life. But it’s only part of the story. There’s more to say and that’s what The Greg Brady Project is all about – a place to say it. So, I’ve invited some friends to join me and share their perspectives on the Brady’s, the 70′s and just about everything else. Now, I’m inviting you…

Schwartzes Set Stage for A Brady Summer

written by Eric Greenberg in Blog | 3 comments

Apparently when Bob Hunt speaks, people listen. The latest Brady revival, “A Very Brady Musical” is officialy set to open at Theatre West in Los Angeles this summer. Don’t expect a strict adaption though. The show will be geared towards adults and will have some very un-Brady like fun with your favorite characters.

If anyone thought Sherwood Schwartz would just coast on his new Hollywood Walk of Fame star, they’d be sorely mistaken. He’s executive producing the show with his son/”Brady Bunch” producer Lloyd Schwartz directing. With music and lyrics from Sherwood’s daughter Hope and son-in-law Laurence Juber, it’s truly a family operation. But before anyone starts crying nepotism, you should know that Juber spent a few years playing guitar for Paul McCartney in Wings.  

The group has some experience bringing TV to the stage having already adapted Sherwood’s other hit ”Gilligan’s Island,” which has played in several cities around country.” Some of you may know that Barry actually played the role of Mr. Howell in that production, which leads back to the question Bob hinted at a few months ago. If ”A Very Brady Musical” were to expand into a national tour, would you like to see Barry in the role of Mike Brady?

    I hereby officially endorse the notion of Barry portraying Mike Brady in a national tour of “A Very Brady Musical” as a Good Idea (TM), if anybody is listening.
