His star turn as Judas in Jesus Christ Superstar with John Legend earned him an Emmy nod and his depiction of Harpo in Broadway’s The Color Purple was honored with a Tony nomination. In 2016, Dixon made headlines when addressing the former Vice-President Mike Pence from the stage of Hamilton on Broadway — expressing his fearless passion for the power of art.
