Watch Cheat Out

Cheat Out, a fabulous new six-episode-long documentary series uncovers the humans behind the characters and stories we love.
Actor and photographer Josh Drake interviews Broadway stars eager to share their tales with the hope of educating, encouraging, and inspiring those on the other side of the curtain. From their favorite deals to their wildest dreams, from their daily routines to their deepest fears…this diverse group of talented individuals metaphorically lays it all bare before experiencing a makeover and photo session that embodies their personal journeys.
In episode one, Josh interviews Alex Newell, the star of Broadway’s Once on This Island, about his gender-fluid career path. Alex explains to Josh why “all pronouns are welcome,” from his origins on Glee to his insistence on casting directors seeing him outside the boundaries of gender.
