Summary

Summary

Finalist for the 2018 Society of Voice Arts and Sciences Award for Best Narration by the Author

Drawing on his own life and career and the rich lore of The Lion King, Alton Fitzgerald White, Broadway’s longest-running “King,” delivers his message of service—taking responsibility for and deriving happiness from commonplace achievements—as a philosophy that anyone can get through each day with satisfaction, pride, and a sense of accomplishment.

If you’ve ever wondered how an actor can perform the same role hundreds of times without burning out, in White’s book you’ll meet someone who does it for thousands more with unabated joy and renewal of purpose. From his life experience, White has learned the secret of tapping his inner resources to meet the challenge of routine and repetition in work and relationships.

Author Bio: Alton Fitzgerald White

Alton White’s journey from his boyhood home in a Cincinnati housing project to the grandeur of Broadway’s Minskoff Theatre is remarkable, but one that many will find touchingly recognizable and relatable. Struggling with feelings of inferiority, he doggedly tried out for role after role and happily accepted whatever was offered to him however modest, approaching each with passion and dedication. His gifts were ultimately recognized and rewarded with major roles. White is the only black actor who has played in a lead role in five hit shows on Broadway: John in Miss Saigon; Ken in Smokey Joe’s Café (he originated the role in London’s West End); Coalhouse Walker Jr. in Ragtime: The Musical; Mister in The Color Purple; and King Mufasa in The Lion King.
