Andrew O'Brien is a born and raised New Yorker and recent graduate of the Manhattan School of Music. He received a Bachelor of Music in Musical Theater and was granted the Provost’s Award for Academic Excellence in his senior year. He also received rave reviews in his hometown of Pelham Manor, New York for his Lady Gaga impressions in the fifth grade, dancing on the sidelines of his Little League soccer games, and his captivating portrayal of Shepherd #3 in the local Christmas Pageant. After local success, he decided to continue his passion for theater and music professionally.
Andrew recently returned to New York from the first Southern National Tour of We'll Meet Again (www.meetagainmusical.com).
