Literary Agent:    n/a

For BBC Worldwide, Warner Brown wrote the arena show Walking With Dinosaurs  the Arena Spectacular, winning the Billboard Magazine Creative Content Award for 2008. Two companies of the show are currently touring the world. the American company, now in its third year, has outgrossed acts such as U2 and Bruce Springsteen in venues from Madison Square Garden to the Staples Arena, Los Angeles. the Europe/Asia company broke all box office records at London's O2 Arena and arrived in China in early 2011. In the autumn of 2010, an episode of CSI: Las Vegas was based upon the show and Walking With Dinosaurs  the Arena Spectacular topped all international box office figures to become the world's largest-grossing property. Warner has been commissioned by MGM On Stage to write the Broadway musical the Thomas Crown Affair. His new musical the Gold Room, written with Michael Feinstein, was recently workshopped in New York, starring Tony-winner Victoria Clark and Jonathan Groff. In the UK, Warner was commissioned to write a new version of the classic British musical Half A Sixpence, which has recently completed a year-long national tour produced by Bill Kenwright starring Gary Wilmot.
