Myles Frost, the star of Broadway’s MJ The Musical signed with UTA in all areas. UTA will help expand Frost’s career, including film, television, brand endorsements and more. Frost, 22, became one of the youngest-ever recipients of the Tony Award for Best Leading Actor in a Musical.
MJ also won Tonys for choreography, lighting design and sound design. With a book by Lynn Nottage and direction/choreography by Christopher Wheeldon, MJ began previews last December at the Neil Simon Theatre and has since become one of Broadway’s biggest hits. Last week, the musical set a box office house record with a weekly gross of $1,681,671.
Frost became a breakout Broadway star this year with his critically lauded performance as Michael Jackson in the bio-musical. Frost was a college junior studying audio engineering before he was discovered during the Covid pandemic by his online acting coach Lelund Durond Thompson. Thompson, who found a video of Frost performing the Jackson hit “Billie Jean” at a high school talent show five years earlier, shared the clip with his partner, Jason Michael Webb, the musical director for MJ.
Frost will continue to be represented by attorney Darrell Miller at Fox Rothschild and managed by Myles Frost Management.
