Candi and Randy welcome Billy Porter, 2013 Tony Award winner for “Best Actor in a Musical” for Kinky Boots, to talk about his many careers – as actor, director, writer, recording artist – with the emphasis on artist.
Last night Billy, along with his Kinky Boots collaborators won 6 Tony Awards including Best Score for Cyndi Lauper, Best Choreography by Jerry Mitchell, and Best Musical.
Early in his career, Billy appeared in several successful Broadway shows (Miss Saigon, Grease, Five Guys Named Moe and Smokey Joes Cafe) and wrote his own one-man shows Ghetto Superstar and At The Corner of Broadway and Soul.
His song, “Time” became an overnight hit after being featured on the TV show “So You Think You Can Dance.”
Billy also appeared as “Belize” in the Signature Theatre Company’s 20th Anniversary off-Broadway production of Tony Kushner’s ANGELS IN AMERICA.
