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…

Q: [by computergrg] Hi Barry…When you were growing up did you ever watch I Love Lucy on Tv??

A: Sure I watched I Love Lucy. Desi Arnaz was a big influence on my wanting to be an actor and singer.

Q: [by operaghost312002] Hi. Barry First let me say I have read your book several times, but I didn't know how extensive you Broadway work was. My question is this Have you ever performed in the phantom of the opera. It would be a lot of fun to see you interpretation. thanks

A: I have appeared in over sixty different productions of shows but Phantom is not one of them. It is a wonderful show but the timing has never been right. Thanks for asking.

Q: [by rhancock] Have you seen The Brady Bunch in the White House? Did you like it?

A: I have seen Brady Bunch in the White House and I am more comfortable with the "originals". Like the movies, White House is more of a spoof having little to do with the Brady Bunch and I guess I am partial to the old gang.

Q: [by brigittavontrapp] Dear Barry, I saw today on TV Land the episode where Imogene Coca starred. I hadn't seen this one in years and wondered what your personal recollections are of working with this wonderful comedienne. Thank you Lori

A: Imogene was very professional and very shy. Sometimes the sound department would have to ask her to speak up so she could be heard. She was a wonderful comedienne and I am very proud to have had a chance to work with her.

Q: [by bobdog24] Barry, I just finished watching the "caveat emptor" episode(I got a bonus point in high school Latin class years ago for knowing the meaning. Thanks!) Anyway, I was wondering if there is there a particular line from any particular episode that sticks in your mind? A line like that just stays with you… Forever.

A: "... and Dad, I’m talkin’ to you man to man now, not boy to man man to man but man to man man to man."

Q: [by donovanpat] I am trying to put together a memoir of John Kenley and his summer stock company. What memories do you have of those seasons?

A: John Kenley is one of the most generous, dedicated and colorful people I have had the pleasure of knowing. He is responsible for years and years of quality theatre all over Ohio. He included me in five of his productions: Pippin, West Side Story, Grease(twice), and I Love My Wife. He is a legendary producer and very well regarded by the entire entertainment community on both coasts. I hope someone will write a definitive biography that accurately chronicles his prolific career.

Q: [by Vance714] Hey there Mr. Williams! How's every little thing? A happy holiday season to you. Just got back from seeing the new 007 movie, and I remembered you mentioning that you are a James Bond fan. I was wondering if you've seen Die Another Day yet, and if so, what you thought of it? Thanks so much. Take care. -Aimee

A: Hi Aimee, As of this writing I have not had a chance to see Die Another Day. It is on the top of my list and knowing you enjoyed it makes me want to make an extra effort to check it out soon. Thanks for inquiring and Happy Holidays to you as well.

Q: [by aprilrichardson] Hello Barry! I LOVE the music of the Brady Bunch! I have the Sunshine Day CD, and I was curious, which song recorded by the Brady kids was your favorite? Personally, I enjoy "Cheyenne". Keep up the good work!

A: Cheyenne is also my favorite song on that CD. It was recorded independent of the Brady’s as a part of my own solo effort. Sunshine Day is my favorite Brady song.

Q: [by fin_lee] Hi Barry, I started university this past Sept. and I'm really enjoying it, even though I'm old enough to be everybody's mother. Did any of the 'Brady kids' ever attend university/college and if so, where did they go and what did they take? Thanks, Lisa

A: I know Christopher Knight attended courses at UCLA. I went to Pepperdine University in Malibu and took general education courses, history, writing, etc.

Q: [by falcon895] Dear Barry, a friend told me you visited the Halsted St. neighborhood of Chicago recently. Is that true? Do you have plans to visit Chicago again? If so, where will you be appearing? I have been a big fan of yours from Brady Bunch days on. Nick

A: I was in for the Peter Gabriel concert at United Center and to be on Mancow’s Morning Madhouse the next day. I visit Chicago frequently and while I will be passing through on Friday I don’t know when I will perform there next. The best way to keep up with the schedule is right here on the website. Things change and happen last minute but I always am sure to keep the site up to date.
