Untitled Sex Project

In 2014, Primary Stages was honored to present the world premiere of While I Yet Live, the powerhouse playwriting debut of Tony and Grammy award-winning icon Billy Porter. To kick off our 35th anniversary season, we will proudly present Porter’s newest work, Untitled Sex Project, directed by Tony nominee Sheryl Kaller, who also helmed While I Yet Live. Untitled Sex Project offers a frank look at the lives of five gay men who, having lived through the AIDS crisis, now find themselves balancing a fraught relationship towards sex and intimacy as ever-evolving gay men within the intensely challenging amorality of our current administration. Seen through the eyes of an African-American gay filmmaker with a troubled sexual history, Porter’s new play is about finding the courage to navigate a difficult past in search of forgiveness, redemption, and the ultimate human need – love.

Billy will be bringing his dulcet vocals and his razor-sharp wit to The Soraya June 2, 2018 in his THE SOUL OF RICHARD RODGERS. Billy managed to take a break from his non-stop schedule of creativity to chat with me.
