A few months ago, Rodney Hicks (well known from the original and closing casts of Rent) departed the company of Come From Away and took to social media to explain why. He was recently diagnosed with a neurological disorder called Spasmodic Dysphonia (which affects his vocal chords). Because of the disorder, Hicks’ will no longer be doing musicals. However, he will continue to act in more in straight plays plus he’ll also be teaching, writing, and more.

Our prayers go out to Rodney. Wishing him for amazing health and many more projects to come. He’s one of the most inspirational people ever.

De’Lon Grant will take over full time in COME FROM AWAY in Hicks’ track of Bob and others starting this Friday. Currently, the role is being performed by understudy Josh Breckenridge.

We love you Rodney!!
