On this week’s episode of Playbill’s Tyler Mount Vlog, De’Lon Grant chats making his Broadway debut, onstage mishaps, favorite cast albums, and more. Grant stepped into the role of Bob (and others) in Come From Away at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Broadway last fall.
Though Come From Away marks the actor’s first time on a Broadway stage, Grant has toured domestically and internationally as Berry Belson in Jersey Boys. He was also recently named Best Leading Actor at the 2017 IRNE Awards for his portrayal of Haywood Patterson in The Scottsboro Boys, a role which also earned him an Elliot Norton Award nomination.
Come From Away was inspired by the true story of a group of travelers whose planes were diverted to a small Newfoundland town following the September 11 attacks in 2001. The original musical features book, music, and lyrics by the Canadian husband-and-wife team Irene Sankoff and David Hein.
