Michael Thomas Grant Joins Cast of EMOJILAND: LIVE IN CONCERT
Michael Thomas Grant will be stepping into the role of Skull in the highly anticipated EMOJILAND: LIVE IN CONCERT, premiering at Rockwell Table & Stage in Los Angeles next week. Grant replaces the previously announced Matt Magnusson, who left the company due to an "unforeseen professional conflict."
Grant performed the role's climactic song "Thank Me Now" at a sneak peek performance at Rockwell as part of the Foundation for New American Musicals' Musi-Cal showcase in October. Watch the video here: /los-angeles/article/Photo-Flash-EMOJILAND-Premieres-Two-Additional-Songs-at-Rockwell-LA-20151015
