There is no much information about his parents but he once said in an interview that he grew up listening to Gershwin, and his dad was a Gershwin fanatic. He said that his father took him to see Crazy For You when he was a kid six times. Six times! His father still gets speechless when he talk to him about [An American in Paris].”
His father traveled to Paris, where the show received its world premiere at the Theatre Du Chatelet. The experience, Uranowitz said, was emotional.
“I very rarely see my dad cry,” Brandon continued, “I think once when my dog died. The last time I remember my dad crying was when he came to Paris to see this show. This is a big moment for all of us — me and my dad. It’s been nice to see his influence sort of come to a head in my career and to feel that. It sort of helps me also connect to the piece a little bit.”
It was a three-act production with swimming, dancing, and towels that said “I had a splash at Brandon’s bar mitzvah.” He attended Montclair Kimberley Academy. He graduated from New York University with a degree in theater arts from their Tisch School of the Arts. In his youth, he studied at Performers Theatre Workshop.
