Meet Quentin Avery Brown as Eat Moe!
I was born in Philadelphia, PA and I started singing in the church choir at the age of 3. I did a talent show at my middle school and once I competed in the talent show my mom started looking up performing arts schools in Philly. We moved to Orlando, FL when I was 12 years old. I went to Dr. Phillips High School which is located directly across the street from Universal Studios Florida and was theatre major in the Visual and Performing Arts Magnet Program.
I’d have to say my mom is what influenced me to become a performer. She used to do gymnastics and dance as a kid before going into medical school and as always allowed me to follow my dreams and encouraged me while still giving tough love! It’s interesting because I’m kinda the only performer in the family and we aren’t quite sure where my singing ability comes because neither of my parents really sing.
I first heard about Five Guys Named Moe in 2017 when I auditioned for a production in Chicago. I was in callbacks for the show but ended up taking another gig. Ever since I encountered the show at the audition, I’m been dying to do it. This is my first time doing the show! Honestly, the entire show is my favorite part. I love being onstage with this incredible cast and band. If I had to pick a specific moment it would be performing the title song “Five Guys Named Moe”. I think there’s a ton of magic that hits the audience when all five Moe’s dance together for the first time!
Some of my favorite shows I’ve been a part would have to be Shrek the Musical, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, and The Color Purple. Some of my dream roles would be Audrey II in Little Shop of Horrors, the Genie in Aladdin and the Minstrel in Something Rotten.
This is my first show at WBT. My favorite thing about working here would have to be the staff here! They feel like family to me and I know it’s gonna be a good day when I walk through the door.
When I’m not onstage I love to travel! I’ve been very fortunate to have traveled out of the country and well as inside of the country. My favorite place I’ve visited would have to be Wellington, New Zealand.
I listen to all kinds of music. You’ll have to check out my new single “To Be In Love” when it comes out next week to see what specifically influences me as an artist.
