Brian Stokes Mitchell Background
Tony-winning Broadway performer and singer Brian Stokes Mitchell hails from Seattle, Washington. But he spent most of his childhood bouncing around military bases because his father worked for the U.S. Navy as a civilian engineer. In an interview with the New York Times, Mitchell said, "I'd been playing the piano since I was 6 and wanted to be a composer, but I also wanted to be an actor. I decided to just pursue both and see which won out." In his formative teen years, he took an interest in acting while living in San Diego.
In 1977 when he was 18, Mitchell headed for L.A. and got a gig working at a theater company. He recalled, "About six months after I got there, I saw this ad in a local magazine about casting for 'Roots: The Next Generation.' I didn't have an agent or anything, but I sent them a letter and some pictures, and about three weeks later, the casting director called and asked me to come in."
Eventually, Mitchell's talents took him all the way to Broadway, performing in Mail in 1988 and Oh, Kay! in 1990. Two years later, he was cast in Jelly's Last Jam. And in 1993 he appeared in Kiss of the Spider Woman. He garnered a Tony Award nod for his performance in 1998's Ragtime and took home a Tony for his work in Kiss Me, Kate (1999).

(2002); Kismet (2006); and The Band Wagon (2014). In 2002, Mitchell was cast in the leading part for Sweeney Todd, which was staged at the Kennedy Center.

He also played Dr. Justin 'Jackpot' Jackson on Trapper John, M.D., dedicating seven years to the role from 1979 to 1986.
