“Bryan is a MASTER at what he does. As a perfectionist, he values performer feedback, which only makes the show rock even more. Rarely did I have any notes to give, because Bryan is RAD.  

I always loved coming into work and seeing Bryan’s name on the call sheet, and I’m blessed to have worked with him for so many years.”  

Ben Eadie


"My first thought was "How the hell did he get the original box?" when I saw these photos. Then I realized you made it... AMAZEBALLS! Your rust treatment is bloody epic.  And yes I honestly thought this was the original. No joke."

"The opera world is extremely lucky that you're a part of our family, Bryan Johnson. Thank you for your hard and brilliant work!  As always you enable our shows to sing in 3-D."

Julia Mintzer

"Bryan's props made it so easy to go all the way onstage! Not only were they  aesthetically hyper realistic, but super easy to handle AND indestructible.

I could be completely free as a performer."
