What's happening, you ask?
TRANSFORMERS: Earthspark on Paramount Plus
I'm so grateful to be apart of such an iconic franchise playing Nightshade, a non-binary bot, in the new TRANSFORMERS TV Show on Paramount Plus & Nickelodeon. Nightshade is just as important as all of the other characters on the show, but I'm honored to originate the character along such a talent packed cast and creative team.
A Jubilee with Z at 54 Below
A Jubilee with Z is an exploration of joy, resilience, and the obstacles we overcome in the face of adversity. With new and original music and covers of John Legend, Bruno Mars, Billie Ellish, and more, the evening will leave you with renewed hope, faith, and determination. You’ll ask yourself, “How can I be the change I wish to see in the world?”

Broadway Sings Ariana Grande
A huge thanks for Corey Mach and the whole team at Broadway Sings for inviting me to sing Break Free by Ariana Grande in an English/Spanish mash up on July 24th. I'm thrilled to have this opportunity and can't wait to jump back on stage at The Cutting Room. Tickets Here.
Broadway Sings Ariana Grande is a unique concert in which Broadway singers and an orchestra come together to perform the best of Ariana Grande. Get ready for an unforgettable musical party full of energy!
Dead End: Paranormal Park on Netflix
The news is out! My dream to be an animated character is coming true. Dead End: Paranormal Park debuts on Netflix on June 16th. It's an otherworldly exploration of magic and the supernatural.
Meet Barney, his dog Pugsley (who can now walk and talk after an exorcism gone wrong-- it’s a long story!), Norma and a thousand-year-old sardonic demon named Courtney who must work together to battle paranormal scares and maybe...just maybe, save the world! Dead End: Paranormal Park is available on Netflix 6/16!
Broadway Backwards, a benefit for Broadway Cares
Having the opportunity to share the stage with this incredible line up of artists was an honor. Notable guests include Tony Award winners and including Bernadette Peters and host Jenn Colella. I cannot wait to share "Impossible" on stage with J. Harrison Ghee! See the video below <3
Broadway Backwards is our annual celebration of LGBTQ+ stories told through the great songs of musical theater. Broadway Backwards began as a grassroots concert performed at New York City’s LGBT Community Center in 2006. The event quickly grew and now is performed annually in a Broadway theater. Since 2010, the evening has been produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and benefits Broadway Cares and the Center.
Actor. Producer. Teaching Artist
Who is this Z Infante you ask?
Well I'm an actor working in theater, film, and television, commercial, and voice over.
A graduate of New York University's Tisch School of the Arts I've had the pleasure to work with artists like Richard Linklater, Julie Taymor, John Leguizamo, and Jack Black. My background in acting began in film at a young age, and has extended from the classics to developing new plays and musicals Off-Broadway and internationally.
I believe in the healing power of storytelling. Whether it be through the lens of a camera, on stage, or in a class room, the arts are my form of liberation. I believe that music can transform us on a cellular level and have been witness to it’s power through my own lived experience. My work is infused with joy, sadness, and a mission toward the betterment of posterity. I create so I can feel connected to a power greater than myself. I create to offer others a means of empathic learning. I create to heal the wounds of conditioning and repression impacted by society. I believe in the healing power of storytelling and my mission is love.
Footage? Hell yea!
