over a role he was cast in for the musical "Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812" that was meant for a person of color. He dropped the role due to scheduling conflicts but said, "I hear what members of the community have said and I agree with them. I am a huge fan of Oak and I will, therefore, not be appearing in the show."
