Everybody loves a lover. I'm a lover. Everybody loves me anyhow. Best how I feel. Wow, I feel just like a polyamph.


Yeah, so we're here with Billy Porter. We've been having some really, really cute technical difficulties, but now we think we've got it all figured out.


Fingers crossed. Billy, it's so fun to see you always and um, it's good to see you guys too.


I know I think that we should start by saying that Billy and I have known each other since 1994.


Right? And we did it December of 93 actually. Oh, December of 93 count. We did.


That's when we started rehearsals. And we're on 42nd Street, you know, when it was still like,


Seedy lots of dirty.


When you could go pay someone to make.


So we did a revival of we did a revival of Greece on Broadway in 1994. And that's when we met.


And it was all of our almost all of our first Broadway show, right?


It was not mine. It was my third, but I know why did you do that before that?


I was in the original cast of Miss Saigon. And then I did the original cast of five guys named Mo and then I came over to Greece.


Okay, good. So we had a lot of fun. It was fun. Billy played the team. Yeah, I was fun.


He like stopped the show every night.


Oh, can you imagine? Yeah. That crazy, crazy production of Greece.


Just type it into YouTube. You'll see it was psychedelic. It was like neon, neon Greece.


The, if I, if I may, I think that the director and the producers were super high every night when they


were deciding what to do. I don't think that's much of a secret.


No, I know they were high when they did. Yeah.


When they put this, put the concept together. I, they were high. You had to be high to come up with that.


It was fun. You were so great.


You were too. I remember. You were too. You were too.
