Billy Masters Reunions

To maneuver these crazy days, one needs a steady hand.  And that’s what we deliver on Billy Masters LIVE – every Tuesday and Thursday at 3PM Eastern / Noon Pacific.  This week’s guests are author Christopher Rice on Tuesday and Funny Gay Males on Thursday.  Last week featured two huge episodes.  On Tuesday, we paid tribute to Naked Boys Singing! – the musical review which started in 1998 as a way to keep West Hollywood’s Celebration Theatre afloat.  Former artistic director Bob Schrock joined composers David Pevsner and Mark Winkler, choreographer Travis Payne, publicity guru Ken Werther, and original stars Brian Beacock and Tod Macofsky for a trip down memory lane.  Check it out on

On Thursday, we had a first – Nikki Blonsky, Tracy in the film adaptation of the musical Hairspray, alongside the Link of the television version, Garrett Clayton.  And what an amazing show it was.  The two of them had never even met before – but both were fans of the other.  We also discussed Nikki’s coming out video, and the YouTube channel Garrett started with his fiancé Blake called A Gay in the Life.  Since the show made its Broadway bow 18 years ago last week, we had to do something special.  In addition to having stars of the film and TV version, we were joined by Linda Hart (the original Velma on Broadway), Bruce Vilanch (original Edna for the National Tour and a Broadway replacement), Chester Gregory (replacement Seaweed on Broadway and National Tour), Charlo Crossley (original Motormouth Mable for the National Tour), and the marvelous Marc Shaiman – composer and co-lyricist.  We even did a scene from the show – with me again playing Penny (for obvious reasons) as well as Amber…because if someone was gonna play Garrett Clayton’s love interest, it was gonna be me.  It was a VERY special episode, which you can watch (along with all our shows) on
