新しい"リトル・マイケル"が"MJ The Musical"へ加入

今夜より、コーリー・JがMJのキャストに加わる。"リトル・マイケル"を演ずる。
コーリー・Jは最近ではライオン・キングの"ヤング・シンバ"として出演している。今年の初め、彼は"ヤング・ナラ"役として加入し、瞬く間に話題となった。彼はクリスチャン・ウィルソンとともに"リトル・マイケル"役に加わる。同役を務めていたウォルター・ラッセル・Ⅲは"リトル・マーロン"役を引き継ぎ、7月12日からは"リトル・マイケル"の代役となる。
健闘を祈る!

コーリー・J(リトル・マイケル)
三拍子そろった役者/モデル。夢であった"リトル・マイケル"役を得てとても喜びかつ光栄に思っている。マイケルのデビュー時に似て、コーリーは6歳の時に"And I Am Telling You"を歌い、初めてスター発掘オーディションに合格した。最近ではブロードウェイで"ヤング・シンバ"役をこなし、"ヤング・ナラ"の代演もこなした。

■New 'Little Michael' Joins 'MJ The Musical' Tonight
Starting tonight, Corey J will join the cast of MJ, playing “Little Michael.”

Corey J was most recently seen as “Young Simba” in The Lion King on Broadway. Earlier this year, he stepped into the role of “Young Nala” at a moment’s notice and made headlines. He will join Christian Wilson in alternating the role. Walter Russell III, who has been alternating the role of “Little Michael,” will take over the role of “Little Marlon” and will understudy “Little Michael” starting on July 12.

Break a leg!

COREY J (Little Michael). A triple threat and model, Corey J is thrilled and honored to be stepping into his dream role as Little Michael. Similar to Michael’s beginning, Corey entered and won his first talent competition at only six years old singing “And I Am Telling You.” He recently made Broadway history during his run as “Young Simba,” for filling in as “Young Nala.” Corey would like to thank Telsey, Bespoke, and the casting team of MJ for choosing him; his manager Sherry Kayne, as well as agents Nick Roses and Bonnie Shumofsky Bloom for believing in him; his vocal coach Stephanie Alvarenga, acting coach Sharra Dade, his teachers and dance family at Innervisions, along with the Blackwell family for preparing him and also his Grandmother, family and close friends for continually showing love and support. Corey would also like to give a special thank you to his Lion King family for being his first examples of theater excellence as well as his Mother for her sacrifices, ALWAYS being by his side and teaching him that not even the sky is a limit! I love you Mom! @theoriginal_prince
