What’s up Broadway fans, and welcome to The Big Apple with entertainer Myles Frost whose art form is defined by dance, music, and fashion. But today, let’s add technology to the mix through Automotive Rhythms, Lexus USA, and the next-level NX 450h+ Luxury, their new hybrid variant. Myles specifically enjoyed the cockpit and infotainment features of the Cadium Orange SUV, which he used to rock his single “Dangerous.”
If you get a chance, please catch MJ The Musical at the Neil Simon Theatre featuring Myles Frost, who magically embodies the King of Pop. What a magnifying show from the choreography to the set design. In fact, the musical broke the Neil Simon Theatre Box Office Record for the 5th time during an 8-performance week, bringing the total cumulative gross of the smash hit to $49,415,323.90. Moreover, MJ The Musical won four 2022 Tony Awards, including Myles Frost’s Best Leading Actor in a Musical. He made history, becoming the youngest solo actor to win the award. After attending the show, I connected with the young entertainer for a “Day in the Life” content piece welcoming us into his energetic world.
With a newfangled Lexus partnership, the New York native profiled his multifaceted universe through the lens of Automotive Rhythms TV while cruising through Times Square in the NX. Of course, Myles is always on the move for shows, media interviews, golfing, or hitting the studio to record. Subsequently, he prefers a capable and sporty ride to keep up with work and lifestyle demands. But, no worries, as the actor, musician, and dancer gets that plus some from the Lexus NX 350h+ Luxury. It features an attention-seeking spindle grille, LED “blade” taillamps, 20” Dark Grey Metallic rims, jeweled exterior trimming, Lexus Interface 14″ touchscreen, 64-color ambient lighting, and an intuitively designed, driver-inspired cockpit. And with all-wheel drive, you know the Japanese crossover has smooth handles to get through NY’s hectic streets. Moreover, the luxury hybrid keeps him flowing seamlessly from the studio to the stage with its efficient and sporty 2.5-liter plug-in hybrid electric engine.
Frost’s list of accomplishments is long, including winner of the 76th Annual Theatre World Award for Outstanding Broadway Debut Performance, a winner of the 2022 Chita Rivera Award, a 2022 Drama League Award Nominee, a 2022 Drama Desk Award Nominee, and a 2022 Outer Critics Circle Award Nominee. Clearly, no ordinary 22-year-old, Myles Frost is a multi-talented, self-trained pianist, actor, singer, songwriter, dancer, music producer, and audio engineer, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg for his aspiring talent. His acting and music credits include All In — where he studied and executed his debut role of Shane, an autistic 14-year-old child — and Netflix’s hit show Family Reunion (Season 1 and 2), correspondingly adding original music.
For vehicle entertainment while cruising from location to location, such as M Social, he reveled in the NX’s innovative technology, including the 14″ Touch Display and Lexus Interface. It uses cloud-based connectivity and a “Hey Lexus” virtual voice assistant to satisfy driver requests. Connecting his phone was straightforward using wireless Apple CarPlay to take calls or chill out to the symphony of his tracks through the 17-speaker Mark Levinson premium audio system. More importantly, wireless phone charging is a must since Myles has too many opportunities for his battery to die. Ah yes, there’s nothing like a fully-loaded experience!
Contributing to his success, Myles acknowledges his strong work ethic, faith, divine timing, and his mother’s unwavering belief. His goal is to pay it forward through his growing platform to create mentorship programs and golf camps for kids who do not have reliable support systems at home or in their communities. Myles also strives to shine a positive light on the importance of mental health. He wants his audience to feel inspired with a greater sense of appreciation, camaraderie, and healing. Of course, this means that safety is also essential. No problem since the Lexus NX features LSS+ 3.0 (Lexus Safety System), one of, if not the most advanced suite of standard safety features in its class, including new E-Latch and Safe Exit Assist.
Writing yet another chapter in the book of compact luxury SUVs, the all-new Lexus NX expands upon the legacy it has carved out in the segment and continues to win over youthful souls like Myles. Whether in-studio, curating MJ moves, or writing new lyrics, Myles Frost is set on giving the people what they want, and that’s pure entertainment.
