He recently portrayed Caiaphas in the award-winning NBC television special Jesus Christ Superstar Live in Concert! alongside John Legend, Sara Bareilles, and Alice Cooper.

Lewis received Tony, Drama Desk, Drama League, and Outer Critics Circle award nominations for his performance as Porgy in the Broadway production of The Gershwins’ Porgy & Bess. In May 2014, he made history as The Phantom of the Opera’s first African American Phantom on Broadway.

Lewis appeared in the Broadway revival of Once on This Island and as Sweeney Todd in the Off-Broadway production of Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street at the Barrow Street Theatre, receiving an AUDELCO Award for his performance.

Lewis also appears regularly on television and in films, including a starring role in Spike Lee’s critically acclaimed Da 5 Bloods, and in the groundbreaking FX series Pose.
