Kevin Smith Kirkwood is Classic Whitney - Alive!
KEVIN SMITH KIRKWOOD most recently appeared as ‘Victor’ in the Fulton Theater’s production of Smokey Joe’s Cafe to rave reviews. Kirkwood performed in the entire Broadway run of the Tony Award-winning musical Kinky Boots, was seen on television in The CW’s Katy Keene, and also appeared as a featured performer in the 2019 WORLD PRIDE PARADE on the Proctor & Gamble float as Whitney.
Kirkwood and Musical Director, Drew Wutke, are thrilled to bring CLASSIC WHITNEY back to where it all began, with a show that celebrates New York City Pride and also FIVE YEARS of performances. Classic Whitney: Pride Edition, will feature a special recreation of Whitney’s 1999 performance at New York City’s iconic Pride Pier Dance Party, while also welcoming back special guests Juson Williams (‘A Wonderful World’) as Luther Vandross, Emily McNamara (‘A Musical About Star Wars’) as Mariah Carey; with fabulous background voices: Kerry Flanagan, John Lucas, and Natalyee Randall. This special Pride Edition will also welcome back JW’s Inspirational Singers, the dynamic and soulful choir that won hearts with their appearance on Season 16 of America’s Got Talent.
