The new Broadway Lecture Series at Montclair State University will launch, Nov. 28 at 7 p.m., with an appearance by Myles Frost, who won a Tony this year in the Leading Actor in a Musical category for playing Michael Jackson in “MJ.” He’ll be interviewed by actor and singer Robert Bannon, who also frequently interviews actors on his YouTube channel, and attendees will be given a chance to ask questions.
According to a press release, the Frost event “will be a 75 minute conversation about Myles’ process and his journey to Broadway. He will give his guidance, stories, and antidotes about growing up, training for this moment, learning to dance, and how he embodies Michael eight shows a week.”
Frost, 23, grew up in Maryland and Washington, D.C., and is making his Broadway debut in “MJ.” At 17, he was a contestant in television’s “The Voice.” He was nominated for a Grammy this week as the principal vocalist of the “MJ” original Broadway cast recording, a contender in the Musical Theater Album category.
The talk will take place at Montclair State’s 193-seat Presentation Hall.
Other Broadway Lecture Series guests will be announced at a later date. For information, visit BroadwayLectureSeries.com.
