I recently performed in an industry reading of Steve Fisher's Broadway-bound Mandela: A New Musical, opposite Tony nominees Norm Lewis and Forrest McClendon. Cast members also included Rosena M. Hill Jackson, Jacob Ming Trent, and the president of Actor's Equity, Nick Wyman. Click below for the Playbill article.
"Tony Award nominee Norm Lewis, who will star in the long-running musical The Phantom of the Opera, will play the title role in an industry reading of Mandela: A New Musical March 31. Featuring a book, music and lyrics by Steven M. Fisher, the 3 PM reading will be directed by David Glenn Armstrong with music direction by Micah Young. The cast also includes Tony Award nominee Forrest McClendon (The Scottsboro Boys)... [and] Ben Schrager."
