Billy Hipkins appeared on Broadway for ten whole weeks in Anna Karenina, The Musical, toured as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, and had lines on every soap opera that began with a vowel. His first solo show, The ALSO-RAN is viewable on his YouTube channel (along with several Miss Lindsey Graham videos), and when not posting snarky/informative videos, he happily works in Broadway wardrobe departments–27 shows to date. Prince Charming, You’re Late is Hipkins' true-life fable, a one-man middle-age-ed cautionary tale warning us to be careful who you crush on, or you might just get crushed.
Once upon a time, the show recounts, a boy named Billy waited patiently for his Prince Charming to rescue him from his life among the commoners, so they could live happily ever after in some far-off kingdom where there would be lots of waltzing. And princess dresses. Many years passed before, one day, Billy’s Prince finally arrived, in the flesh! He was a noble, handsome, and downright charming man. Half Billy’s age and straight as an arrow.
