He’s been the pride of Bowie State University since he debuted as Michael Jackson last December at the Neil Simon Theater in MJ: The Musical. Now Myles Frost, a music technology major at Bowie State, has been nominated for a Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical.

Frost competed for the lead role last year and has been amazing theater goers in New York with his acting prowess, signature Michael Jackson dance moves, and singing. He is the one of the first, if not the first, HBCU students to be nominated for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical on Broadway.

Professor Tewodross W. Williams, chair of the Fine and Performing Arts Department, says he is overcome with joy. “When I saw him perform on Broadway in March, I knew he was a special talent,” said Professor Williams. “The entire Bowie State University family is supporting him and will be watching intently when the Tony Award winners are announced on CBS on June 12.”
