‘Hamilton’ actor to visit Middlebury on Wednesday
MIDDLEBURY — Broadway stage actor Bryan Terrell Clark will share his personal story and discuss self-empowerment through the arts in a talk at Middlebury College’s Wilson Hall on Oct. 2 at 7 p.m. His talk, “Finding Your Purpose: From Baltimore to Broadway’s Hamilton,” is part of the Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays lecture series and is free and open to the public.
Drawing from his humble beginnings in Baltimore to his career on Broadway, Clark will discuss how exposure to the arts can empower young people to discover the best version of themselves.
Clark is an accomplished actor and singer/songwriter who has performed in hugely successful Broadway shows and a wide range of popular television programming for various networks. He recently appeared as George Washington in the Tony Award-winning, record-breaking Broadway box-office smash hit “Hamilton.” He made his Broadway debut playing the iconic role of Marvin Gaye in “Motown: The Musical,” which received a 2014 Grammy Award nomination for Best Musical Theater Album. Numerous television appearances include Netflix’s “When They See Us,” OWN’s “Queen Sugar,” CBS’s “NCIS: New Orleans,” “Blue Bloods,” “Person of Interest,” “Unforgettable,” “CSI: NY” and “The Unit.”
