Candi and Randy welcome Billy Porter, 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.

Billy stars in the hit Broadway show, Kinky Boots (music by Tony Award winner Cyndi Lauper, written by Tony Award winner Harvey Fierstein, directed by Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell), and is working on his upcoming new CD, "The Standard."
 
Early in his career, Billy appeared in several successful Broadway shows (MISS SAIGON, GREASE, FIVE GUYS NAMED MOE  and SMOKEY JOE'S CAFE) and wrote his own one-man shows GHETTO SUPERSTAR and AT THE CORNER OF BROADWAY AND SOUL.
 
Other plays he has appeared: TOPDOG/UNDERDOG, JESUS CHRIST SUPERSTAR and DREAMGIRLS, and the song cycles MYTHS AND HYMNS and SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD. 
 
His song, "Time" became an overnight hit after being featured on the TV show "So You Think You Can Dance."
 
Billy appeared as "Belize" in the Signature Theatre Company's 20th Anniversary off-Broadway production of Tony Kushner's ANGELS IN AMERICA.
