Pride on Billy LIVE

Way back in 2013, an all-star cast assembled in NYC to celebrate the 20th anniversary of David Drake’s play, The Night Larry Kramer Kissed Me.  The event served as a benefit for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, and starred Drake alongside such performers as Anthony Rapp, BD Wong, Robin de Jesús, André De Shields, and Rory O’Malley.  An archival video from that night will be live streamed to raise money for the Provincetown Theater – where Drake is artistic director.  Check out the company’s website of on June 28th.

You can get a taste of David Drake when he joins us this week on Billy Masters LIVE.  The multi-hyphenate Drake, a dear friend of yours truly, will appear on Tuesday, June 23rd.  But he won’t be alone – no, there will be some surprise guests.  You’ll just have to tune in to find out who.  While we’re tooting our own horn, on Thursday, June 25th, Frank DeCaro will return to regale us with stories from his encyclopedic volume, Drag: Combing Through the Big Wigs of Show Business.  And he’ll be joined by two legendary performers – Alaska Thunderfuck and Chad Michaels.  Be sure to check out, or Billy Masters TV on YouTube.


We just wrapped up another interesting week on Billy Masters LIVE.  On Tuesday, we featured anchormen Thomas Roberts and Steve Kmetko to discuss the changing face of television.  It was fascinating when you consider the three of us span three decades in age, and yet our stories were all remarkably similar.  On Thursday, we had Eddie Shapiro discussing his Broadway book, Nothing Like a Dame, alongside Tony Award winner Levi Kreis.  We talked about where Broadway has been, where it’s going, and what to do with Levi (I dreamt up a few more suggestions the other night).  You can see it all on – or
