Grey Henson will play Elder McKinley in “Book of Mormon,” nominated for 9 Tony awards, including best musical. The Book of Mormon national tour will feature a Macon-grown star.
“The Book Of Mormon” is a satire about Mormon missionaries in Uganda. Henson starts rehearsing Monday. He says his character “is a closeted homosexual, and that’s a big no-no in the church.”
Henson comes from a musical family. His dad, Johnny Henson, taught Grey his first few songs. His mom, Paige Henson, knew Grey was meant for stardom when he was only six years old.
“I remember him singing ‘Help Me Rhonda.” That just comes to my mind,” says Johnny. Paige is convinced he’s taking broadway by storm to meet a bigger star.
In “The Book of Mormon,” the 22-year-old sings ‘Turn it Off.’ To get into character.
