Billy’s Gay View

The latest episode of Billy Masters LIVE was quite a landmark.  At the risk of sounding like Barbara Walters, I always wanted to do a show with gay men of different generations, backgrounds, and views.  In light of the recent Oscars, I planned to sit down with award-winning writer, comedian, and bon vivant Bruce Vilanch – and, boy, did he give us Oscar dish!  I then mixed in producer and director Richard Jay-Alexander.   To fill the “young one” slot, I enlisted actor Jonny Beauchamp.  It was a combustible combination – and one that led to some fascinating discussions.  From the Academy Awards, to Colton Underwood, to The Talk, to opportunities for gay actors, it was really on fire!  I’m planning a panel show every month – and perhaps more often.  If you missed it, check out Billy Masters LIVE on our YouTube channel Billy Masters TV or on BillyMasters.com/TV.  And, again, thanks Del!

This Thursday, May 6th, we have a treat for fans of Broadway.  Columnist Michael Riedel has written a fabulous book called Singular Sensation: The Triumph of Broadway, in which he peeks behind the curtain during the 1990s (his previous book, Razzle Dazzle: The Battle for Broadway, covers the prior period).  And Eddie Shapiro has a great new book out called A Wonderful Guy: Conversations with the Great Men of Musical Theater (his previous book was Nothing Like a Dame: Conversations with the Great Women of Musical Theater).  Both men are joining me to discuss their books and what they think Broadway post-pandemic will look like – and when they’ll finally give out last year’s Tonys!  Be sure to watch Billy Masters LIVE – ‘cause if we’re there, we’re live.
