Working with Darryl Stephens on #CongoCabaret

Darryl Stephens (@darrylstephens) was one of the #Hollywood stars I had some connection to before directors Deondray and Quincey Gossfield (@deondraygosset) (@quincygossfield) came on board. I had been introduced to Darryl by Chad Kukahiko (@Chukahiko) who had collaborated with him on a great musical #HipsterSweatshop. Darryl is one of the busiest and best-known #queer #black leading men in Hollywood, and when the Gossfields cast him as the #CongoCabart #emcee, he gladly came on board. Gave a great extroverted performance as, to quote him, “the loud Black man.”
