Boston College Alum Bryce Pinkham is a Grammy and Tony nominated American stage and screen actor. He is perhaps best known for originating the role of Monty Navarro in the Broadway production of A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder. The performance earned him a Grammy Award nomination as well as a Tony Award nomination for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical. Pinkham went on to star in the Broadway revival of The Heidi Chronicles as Peter Patrone, for which he was nominated for an Outer Critics Circle Award, as well as the Drama League Award for Distinguished Performance in 2015. Recent film and television appearances include performances in the Robert DeNiro comedy The Comedian and Baz Luhrmann’s Netflix drama, The Get Down as well as a regular role in the PBS series Mercy Street. In 2012, Pinkham was awarded the prestigious Leonore Annenberg Fellowship, which is given to “a limited number of exceptionally talented young dancers, musicians, actors and visual artists as they complete their training and begin their professional life.” In the same year, Pinkham and fellow actor Lucas Caleb Rooney co-founded Zara Aina, a non-profit organization devoted to helping at-risk children expand their capacity for achievement through theatrical performance and storytelling. Pinkham also performs regularly with the theatre company Outside the Wire, which takes performances of Greek tragedy to American-military audiences around the world to foster discussion about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and soldier suicide. Pinkham is a graduate of the Yale School of Drama and Boston College.

Bryce Pinkham will give a lecture based on his latest project, followed by a moderated conversation and audience Q&A. Details to follow.
