Don't Miss: An evening with Billy Porter at guild hall


Guild Hall the cultural heart of the East End, will host a benefit concert this Friday, July 12th with award-winning actor and singer Billy Porter. The night will celebrate the reopening of Guild Hall’s newly renovated theater.

The grand opening event will feature a special performance by Porter drawing from his diverse repertoire of Broadway standards and selections from his five album releases, including his latest critically acclaimed collection of autobiographical pop tunes, Black Mona Lisa. Porter is widely known for his Tony-award-winning performance in Broadway’s Kinky Boots and for his Emmy-winning portrayal of Pray Tell in the FX series, Pose.
