Charles Troy

Charles Troy, America’s most acclaimed dramatic musical theatre historian, is a graphic designer and former theatre lyricist who has developed more than fifty multimedia presentations on musical theatre subjects. These visually seamless presentations combine his own original graphics with historic photos, edited audio tracks with the lyrics displayed onscreen, and illustrative video clips — all coordinated with a scripted narrative, evolved from his extensive research, that weaves the pertinent events into a dramatic tale. During the pandemic, he has converted these presentations into videos which he presents virtually.

Charles is based in the Chicago area. He has also appeared in New York City, in Scottsdale, in San Francisco, and he makes a tour of Florida every January.
