Alton Fitzgerald White BIO

Alton Fitzgerald White captivates audiences whenever and wherever he performs. The triple talented singer, actor, dancer has starred in six smash Broadway hits! He made his Broadway starring debut as John in Miss Saigon with his powerful heart rending performance of the anthem “Bui Doi” bringing nightly ovations.

Demonstrating his vocal versatility Alton then moved on to the more aggressive role of The Hawker in The Who’s Tommy, the hit rock-opera.

Next was the popular Broadway show Smokey Joe’s Café where Alton dazzled theatergoers with dynamic renditions of Leiber and Stoller classics. His commanding performance reached new heights as he sang and danced the romantic pas de deux “Spanish Harlem,” to stunning applause. This performance lead to his West End debut in the original London company of the smash hit.

Alton then landed the coveted starring role of Coalhouse Walker Jr. in Ragtime: The Musical. The journey began with the pre-Broadway original company in Toronto opposite 6 time Tony Award Winner Audra McDonald, the critically acclaimed national tour and ultimately Broadway, opposite Tony Award Winner LaChanze. His performance mesmerized audiences into consistent emotional standing ovations.

Alton’s next move took him on the road to originate the role of Mufasa in the 1st National Tour (The Gazelle Tour) of Disney’s The Lion King. After just over a year of touring, Alton was thankfully invited to take over the role in the Broadway company. Then, in the Fall of 2007, Alton was offered the amazing opportunity to play the role of Mister in Oprah Winfrey’s The Color Purple opposite American Idol winner Fantasia Barrino. For a phenomenal 3 weeks, Alton was blessed with the wonderful challenge of rehearsing the role of the troubled, tortured Mister during the day while performing the role of the iconic father Mufasa in the evenings. Being a part of 2 incredible Broadway shows at the same time is a thrilling honor that Alton will never ever forget!!!

After an exceptionally blessed 5 1/2 years of continuous 8 shows a week on Broadway, Alton took a year off for TV (episodes of “Law and Order”), Film (The Invention of Lying, directed by and starring the brilliant multi-award winning comedian, Ricky Gervais), concerts around the world, voice-overs and commercial work. Very soon after, Disney invited Alton to re-create the role of Mufasa for a record breaking, sit-down company at The Mandalay Bay in Viva Las Vegas where he fell in love with the mountains and Bikram Yoga. After a phenomenal year in Vegas, he was again invited back into the Broadway company. October 2012 marked the release of his critically acclaimed, smash hit CD,Disney My Way!, full of wonderful re-imagined Disney classics. After a record-breaking 4,308 performances as King Mufasa in The Lion King, Alton added author to his growing list of titles with his recent book release titledMY PRIDE: Mastering Life’s Daily Performance, a best selling inspirational biography filled with secrets to fulfillment and joy in work and life, published by Disney Editions. Alton has also become an in-demand motivational speaker at BrightSight Group and has been a Keynote Speaker for clients like Seasons Healthcare Management, Americans For The Arts, The Wisconsin Association of School Boards and Youth First Partnership to name a few. His popular TEDx Talk can be found on YouTube. Alton has made guest star appearances on the hit series MINDHUNTER (NETFLIX), MADAM SECRETARY (CBS), BULL (CBS), THE BLACKLIST (NBC), THE GOOD FIGHT ( and CODE BLACK(CBS) and has featured roles in four upcoming films including the highly anticipated THE GOLDFINCH playing opposite Nicole Kidman. Next up, he will be featured in RENT LIVE for The FOX Network. Alton feels blessed to have a life and career that continues to expand and thrive and he is Extremely Grateful to The Universe and to his parents, Paul and Marietta White and his family for ALL of His Blessed Gifts!
