Brian King/What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?
3rian King is a singer-songwriter, playwright, and performer whose voice Whoopi Goldberg described as the last sound she wanted to hear before sleep to ensure beautiful dreams. Either solo or with neo-cabaret band, What Time Is It, Mr. Fox?, 3rian has released 3 albums, performing and producing acoustic house concert tours to multimedia shows at venues like Club Passim and the ART in Boston, and Dixon Place, The Stonewall, Joe’s Pub, and Irving Plaza in NYC. Their original theatrical circus show about embodying and shedding queer stereotypes, Gravitational Fool, premiered in the Afterglow Festival in Provincetown before performances at ART and Endicott College which included student workshops in aerial theater and personal monologues. For Afterglow and ART, 3rian and Johnny Blazes co-created Do You Queer What I Queer?, a conversational rock cabaret exploring differences and commonalities between two queers aged 10 years apart growing up in Massachusetts. 3rian’s song “Cold Rain” was covered by Irma Thomas on her Grammy-nominated album “Simply Grand,” earning high praise in Rolling Stone & USA Today. Most recently, their original play Medusa Reclaimed, a feminist reimagining of the Greek myth, completed sold-out runs in the Charles Hayden Planetarium in Boston’s Museum of Science in 2019 and Central Square Theater in Cambridge MA in June 2022. 3rian has also worked in public health an advocacy for 20 years including a decade as director of Prism LGBT Health in Beverly MA, and presently as HIV/AIDS Medical Case Manager for North Shore Health Project in Gloucester MA.
