MONDAY MUSICALS KICK OFF

This week, XL Cabaret debuted ‘Monday Musicals,’ which included a special performance by Tony Award winning Kinky Boots star Billy Porter, who wasted no time shaking things up as soon as he stepped foot in the place.

Actor Victor Garber also joined the night’s festivities, which drew a large and lively crowd, including NYC gossip columnist Michael Musto (formerly of Village Voice fame). Next week, ‘Monday Musicals’ will feature Broadway’s Lion King star Chondra Profit.

Porter has graced Broadway in Miss Saigon, Smokey Joe’s Café and Grease. He won his first Tony earlier this year for the portrayal of “Lola” in Kinky Boots. For his XL Cabaret appearance, the vivacious performer had a few surprises planned and made sure he connected with the audience. A few even got to share a “fierce” moment in the spotlight.

I missed this one, but here’s more highlights courtesy of Andrew Werner Photography.
