Alumni Spotlight

Alex Vinh graduated in 2018 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre. He is currently an understudy for Seth, Aaron and Martin in the Tony Award-winning Broadway musical Kimberly Akimbo. Alex also appeared in the hit show Only Murders in the Building. As a TCU Alum, Alex continues to put his passion into practice. According to Vinh, “I pursued theatre because I enjoyed it. There was no promise that I would be famous or even work consistently as an actor. Even now, those things are not promised! I knew I could commit at least four years of my life to becoming a better performer…TCU allowed me to explore my passion while surrounded by the kindest, most supportive community.”
