“Tricia Brouk is slick and earnest”
The New Yorker
Director, Writer, Producer, Curator, Coach
I am an international award winning director. I have worked in theater, film and television for over three decades. In addition to my work in the entertainment industry, I apply my unique expertise to the art of public speaking. I’m the Executive Producer of Speakers Who Dare, and the former Executive Producer of TEDxLincolnSquare in New York City. I worked on Black Box on ABC, The Affair on Showtime, Rescue Me on Fox, and closely with John Turturro’s Romance and Cigarettes, where I was awarded a Golden Thumb Award from Roger Ebert, for my choreography. I had the privilege of working closely with my friend, the late James Gandolfini, Susan Sarandon, Kate Winslet, Christopher Walken, Eddie Izzard and Steve Buscemi. I also make several appearances in the film and you can catch it on.
The web-series, I produced and directed, Sublets, won Best Comedy at the Vancouver Web-Festival. I also curate the Speaker Salon in NYC, an incubator and showcase for emerging speakers, giving speakers the opportunity to get in front of influencers, event organizers, television producers, and TEDx organizers, who can put them onto big stages. I have an 100% booking rate for my Salon members. My award winning podcast, The Big Talk has over 250 episodes, where I interview people who talk for a living, including Stedman Graham, and yes, Oprah comes up.
I also produced and directed, The Big Talk Over Dinner, a new tv series, where I invite people to have dinner with me to discuss topics like politics, race, immigration, gender, marriage and arts and entertainment. In producing this series, it’s my passion to show that is possible to have mindful conversations about hard topics. I believe we can respectfully communicate while simultaneously having opposing view-points.
I was awarded Top Director of 2019 by the International Association of Top Professionals and also make documentary films about people doing incredible things. Just Enough, featuring Jenn Lederer, about being enough as a woman, This Dinner Is Full featuring Chris Schembra about teaching compassion over pasta dinner, Right Livelihood A Journey to Here featuring Justin Von Bujdoss, the Buddhist Chaplain at Riker’s Island won Best Documentary Short at The Olympus Film Festival and You’re Gorgeous, I Love Your Shirt, An Inside Look at Bullying and Mental Health, featuring Tonya and Lyndsey Harris, won the Award of Merit at the Awareness Festival and both are in circulation for an Oscar from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Science. I’m currently working on anything and everything I can to make the world a better place.
In The News
The New York Times
…structure and emotion, both embraced avidly.
…Brouk is bold and crystal clear.
Tricia Brouk lends an irresistible, maniacal dimension to Turturro’s vision, especially in a salsa number complete with firemen in a conga line, clamoring after Kate Winslet.
The New York Times
As a performer, Brouk embodies clarity, freshness and … a dramatic intuitiveness that has lent her dancing an effervescent elegance.
Tricia provides a polishing staging.

Tricia Brouk is slick and earnest.
Broadway After Dark
Think Gypsy Rose Lee in sophistication, together with a little bawdy, a lot of talent and an evening from which you will walk away smiling.
Brouk emanates an encompassing, welcoming presence on the stage–she’s a dancer who is not just in her own world, but invites you into that world, to experience and share the dance with her.
Erotic Broadway/Vintage Variety is a sort of high class PG-13.

Ms. Brouk has all the actors moving throughout the show with the same stylization and pace and maintains the beauty of that movement from first step to last.
I’m always amazed at Tricia Brouk’s effect on me – What an amalgamation of sacred and profane…and making it all look so easy…Wow.
She is also a starry, sparkling stage presence, one of the most beautiful and accomplished women on New York stages.
