About Anthony Wayne

A man of many sides as an actor, producer and creator, Anthony Wayne has been blessed to do what he’s been born to do. Originally from Norfolk, Virginia and a graduate of Shenandoah Conservatory, Mr. Wayne has recently been seen on Broadway singing “Let’s Stay Together” as Raymond, Tina Turner’s first love interest in “TINA – THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL.” His additional Broadway credits include “TOOTSIE – The Musical”, “ANYTHING GOES”, “PIPPIN”, “ONCE ON THIS ISLAND” and “PRISCILLA, QUEEN OF THE DESERT”. His touring credits include “A CHORUS LINE” as Richie Walters, “THE COLOR PURPLE” and “FAME-THE MUSICAL” as Tyrone Jackson. 

In addition to Broadway, he performs in “MIGHTY REAL: A FABULOUS SYLVESTER MUSICAL”; the musical based on the life of 1970’s disco legend as SYLVESTER.

Mr. Wayne resides in Harlem, New York and contributes his time inspiring Black men of the Broadway and theatre community to find the greatness within themselves to be great daily. That work inspired him to found the 501(c)(3) Nonprofit organization “BLACK BROADWAY MEN” which celebrates, educates, and motivates black men of the Broadway & theatre community by creating unity within each other, finding strength through educational opportunities and embraces the legacy of those that have come before us because we are the legacy for those to come after. 

He is a firm believer of creating moments and memories with those he truly cares about and makes time with his chosen & blood family a priority. He, also, believes that the stage is his platform to allow his light to shine bright and his voice to be loud. That inspiration drives him to shine that light no matter what.
