Myles Frost Biography

Myles Frost is a Theatre Award Winner for Outstanding Broadway Debut Performance in a Broadway Musical, Tony Award Nominee for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical, Drama League Award Nominee, & an Outer Critics Circle Award Nominee for his role as Michael Jackson in MJ The Musical.

Myles Frost is no ordinary 22-year-old. He is a multi-talented, self-trained pianist, singer, songwriter, dancer, actor, music producer, audio engineer, and even an avid golfer (when time permits), but that's just the tip of the iceberg for this aspiring talent. His acting and music credits include ALL IN, where he studied and executed the role of an autistic 14-year-old child, and Netflix‚Äôs hit show FAMILY REUNION (Season1 and 2), respectively. In the fall of 2021, Myles appeared in a biopic movie ‚ÄúBig 50‚ÄĚ THE DELRHONDA HOOD STORY as Clarence, which aired on BET Networks and is available on all BET Plus streaming platforms. He was also a contestant on NBC‚Äôs THE VOICE SEASON 13. Myles Frost is a passionate artist with a substantial amount of professional work, all of which has culminated in the preparation and mastery for his ultimate role to date: landing the coveted lead role as Michael Jackson in the Broadway musical MJ. It has provided the perfect backdrop for Myles to showcase years of honing all of his talents for the world to see.

Born in Maryland and raised on the Southeast side of Washington, D.C. (collectively known as the DMV, including Virginia), Myles attended Thomas Wootton High School, where his love for musical theater was born. Joining Wootton's Theatre Club, he played lead roles in HAIRSPRAY THE MUSICAL, LEGALLY BLONDE, and CINDERELLA in a supporting role. The unique combination of acting, singing, and dancing inspired the young artist to pursue his theatrical endeavors strictly and put his dreams of becoming a professional golfer on hold until further notice. His current R&B/Top 40 single, "Dangerous" notably boasts 18k streams on Spotify. With the official sound of The District of Columbia and the DMV area being Go-Go music, Frost's DMV roots are evident throughout his music. The talented singer-songwriter is currently working on R&B, Top 40 and Go-Go produced songs to accompany his highly anticipated debut EP. Myles recently attended Bowie State University as a Senior majoring in Music Technology before landing his MJ role on Broadway. Frost’s other interests include playing basketball, cooking, watching anime, playing PlayStation, and preparing for the day he gets the call to play the superhero, Miles Morales. Myles acknowledges his strong work ethic, faith, divine timing, and his mother's unwavering belief in his potential to contribute to his success. His goal is to pay it forward by using his growing platform to create mentorship programs and music camps for kids who don’t have reliable support systems at home or in their communities. He also hopes to shine a positive light on the importance of mental health.
What does Frost want most? For his audience to feel something while coming away from his work with a greater sense of camaraderie and healing. His inspiration is Michael Jackson.
Myles Frost is currently starring as Michael Jackson in the musical MJ at the Neil Simon Theatre.
