RACINE SUNDAY BULLE'lflN Jan. 14, 1962 Sec. 2, Page 11 Ex-Racine Man, at 26, Becomes Youngest Play Producer in N. Y. By Tom Miilstead Journal-Times Staff NEW YORK — A young man from Racine has blithely shattered the traditional image of a New York play producer as a gray, grim veteran dating back at least to the days of David Belasco. J. Terry Brown Jr., at 26, is the co-producer of not one but two plays now enjoying successful runs in Manhattan. He is the youngest producer represented in the big city's current theatrical season. And "it feels wonderful," says Brown, who admits to having been stagestruck all his life. He is the son of Mr. and Mrs. John T. Brown of 1130 Main St. The senior Brown is director of the J. I.

Ski Jumping Finals to Be on TV Today The finals to determine who will represent the U. S. in the world ski jumping championships will be shown today on "Sunday Sports Spectacular" over channels 2 and 12 at 1:30 p.m. The 90-minute telecast was taped at Steamboat Springs, Colo. Other events on the program include a torchlight ski parade, a horse-drawn sleigh race, a slalom exhibition and a demonstration of ski patrol rescue methods. national. Off-Broadway Shows Terry Brown's productions are a musical, "All In Love," and a Sean O'Casey drama, "Red Roses for Me." Both are part of the off-Broad- 'way movement which has istriven in recent years toithe score they'd written. For 'avoid the high costs and al-ipractical guidance, the young lleged conformation of thejmen turned to Miss Stella from "All in Love" is about to be released and Brown hopes this will further lengthen the production's run at the Martinique Theater. Liked the Score Brown became involved in the play when he met Urbont and Celler and was sold on jWhite Way area. Off-Broadway shows are more modestly financed than "Camelot" and "My Fair Lady," but they are still big league. And these are only Brown's first ventures. His mind is Holt, one of the most illustrious of off-Broadway producers. Miss Holt was better known for avant garde drama than musicals, but, says Brown, "after she heard the first two'of ring Martyn Green, was subsequently presented at the Greenwich Mews Theater with Miss Holt and Brown as producers. Brown unashamedly relishes the old-time concept of showmanship. For the opening of "All in Love" an elaborate black-tie party — complete with celebrities and U.N. delegates—was given at the Plaza Hotel. The festivities put to shame the opening night celebrations of the plushest Broadway hits. Whose idea was it? "Mine," Brown grins. "Mental Anguish" His duties as a producer are not easily explained. "They're too overall to be defined. The producer has to undergo all the mental anguish and contend with everybody's problems. And, above all, he has to raise the money." In pursuit of "angels," Brown contacted friends both in New York and Wisconsin, selling pieces of his plays in relatively inexpensive lots. Since the products will apparently ring up a profit, he smiles, those friends are still his friends.

Brown seeped himself in amateur dramatics and in theatrical studies in school and spent a season with the Racine Summer Theater. But he concedes he has only one professional acting credit. That was in Phoenix, when he played a "small but bloody" role in "Macbeth." Now assistant to the owner of the talent agency wiiore he works, Brown deals with established clients like Gypsy Rose Lee and labors at developing newcomers.
