Billy Porter: Unprotected

Porter Mainevent Web


The incomparable Emmy, Grammy, and Tony award-winner from Pose and Kinky Boots sits down with writer and director Tina Landau to talk about his powerful and revealing autobiography about race, sexuality, and art.

“There is only one Billy Porter. He is blazing a trail where none existed. Whether you noticed the brilliant blaze early (for me, it was his brilliant 2005 live album, At the Corner of Broadway and Soul) or his transcendent portrayal of Lola in Kinky Boots or the unforgettable Pray Tell on Pose, once you see the light, there’s no going back. And it turns out his voice rings just as true on the page as it does on the stage. How lucky we are to witness it in our time.” —Lin-Manuel Miranda

Special bonus: Tickets come with a copy of Unprotected.

Symphony Space is committed to the health and safety of its artists, staff, and audience. Books will be available for purchase, but there will not be a book signing at this event.
