Tyrone L. Robinson

A snare drum roll. A cymbal CRASH! The hypnotic refrain vamps…

A man’s voice: “In here, life is beautiful.”

I was 10 when I first heard a Broadway musical soundtrack:  Kander and Ebb’s Cabaret.

After an acting career – most recently on Broadway in Disney’s Frozen – I am delighted to now be directing at the regional theatre level.

A trained musician, I read music, am a history buff, and am passionate about collaboration. 

I love getting to work with everyone involved on a production.

Recent Directing: Owen and Mzee (tour) for Vital Theatre Company in New York, resident director at Actor Screener Shoot in New York City, and the short film Un{H}armed, which was an official selection of film festivals nationwide.

Upcoming: This Bitter Earth by Harrison David Rivers at InterAct Theatre Company (Philadelphia), White Ally (reading) by Douglas Williams at Bristol Riverside Theatre (PA), and a remount of Owen and Mzee for Vital Theatre Company which will run in New York City and on tour (Spring 2022).
