About Justin

Justin Lee Miller has had a unique career working across a wide range of artistic disciplines. A graduate of the University of Michigan's Musical Theatre department, Justin went on to perform on Broadway in My Fair Lady, The Phantom of the Opera, and On the Town. He also trained as a classical singer studying with the late Shirley Verrett and has appeared at many of the world's leading opera houses including Los Angeles Opera, Opera Comique Paris, Lyric Opera Chicago, New Orleans Opera, Atlanta Opera, and countless others across Europe.

Some of his favorite projects include Sunday in the Park with George (The Guthrie), Kismet (City Center Encores!), Ragtime (Paper Mill Playhouse), Oklahoma! (Portland Center Stage), Don Giovanni (Neighborhood Opera Pittsburgh), The Music Man (Arena Stage), Floyd Collins (Weston Playhouse), Show Boat (Bad Hersfelder Festspiele in Germany), Porgy and Bess (Metropolitan Opera), The Christmas Rose (Carnegie Hall), Sweeney Todd (New York Philharmonic), and Camelot starring Lin-Manuel Miranda (Lincoln Center Theater). He can be heard on the 2018 Broadway cast recording of My Fair Lady and the 2006 Decca recording of Porgy and Bess.

In high school, Justin traveled to Russia as an exchange student and has returned many times performing at the Moscow Conservatory among many other venues. He also works as a writer. His forthcoming projects include a stage adaptation of Passing by Nella Larsen and a new novel.

I encourage students to explore new ideas and to look under rocks.
