Pose's Billy Porter to Debut New Play in Late 2019!

Billy Porter will be returning to the stage this fall in a new play that he also wrote!

The 49-year-old Pose actor, who was nominated for both a Golden Globe and a Critics’ Choice Award this year, will star in the play Remember to Live.

Remember To Live “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,” Primary Stages said in a statement.

The play will run at the Off-Broadway house from October 29 through December 22.

Billy is a Broadway veteran and he won a Tony Award for his work in Kinky Boots.

Pose's Billy Porter Thinks Kevin Hart Should Still Host the Oscars

Billy Porter, a Golden Globe nominee tonight for his work on the groundbreaking series Pose, is opening up about the Kevin Hart controversy.

Kevin was slated to host the 2019 Oscars, but then he dropped out after his decades-old homophobic tweets resurfaced. Now, he says he’d still be open to hosting the show.

Billy previously slammed Kevin, but now it seems he will support the comedian if he’s reinstated as the host.

“He’s a great talent, and he would be wonderful hosting the Oscars,” Billy told Variety this weekend.

Previously, Billy told Consequence of Sound, “I say to Kevin Hart, and I say to D.L. Hughley, I say to those people who think that they don’t need to apologize for s–t and dig their heels in their toxic masculinity: But you want your rights. You want people to stop shooting your children in the back? But yet still, you turn around and oppress other people the same way you’re being oppressed. F–k that. F–k you. We’re done.”
