Cesar Brandi is an American treasure. Even though he comes all the way from São Paulo, Brazil, he embodies all the qualities this country is known for: Talent, determination and uniqueness. After moving to the US in 2014, he has become a worshipped figure here in the New York Theater and Film scene.
We have recently had the pleasure at CNF Magazine to witness Brandi’s superb performance in the Off-Broadway production of Five Flights, at the Davenport Theater. A play by Adam Bock, Cesar portrayed the lead character Ed, a sensitive and obsessive young man, magnificently. His performance was impeccable from start to finish, and he really conveyed the character’s struggles in the interesting plot about religious fanaticism. Starring opposite Shades of Blue actress Anna Fihkman, Cesar Brandi was one of the highlights of last Off-Broadway’s season. The kid’s a star.
