Good morning, Beautiful People! We are coming down to the last two shows of the season. Boy, has it been a wild unexpected ride putting this production on? I have met the loveliest colleagues here. A generous director; who’s hired me for “La Cage aux Folles.”, in Wien. Typing from my hotel bed with my bonnet on I feel grateful. I’ve done something I never thought I could: I followed my dreams. I left NYC. My job. My connections and I started over at 39. Thank you Universe/God. The Divine.
Morning Beautiful People! Why do you dance? Because I am free. These are various clips taken from improvisations I frequently used to do. As a dancer, what I've striven for was having not only “great technique.” But, a body and heart that share emotions in movement. I lived a life. I bring everything to the dance. My joy, pain, sorrow, confusion, love, gratitude, seeking. I have many heroes. Mr. Sidney Poitier, we've never met, but I thank and salute you. #dance #sidneypoitier #williampenelope
Hello Beautiful People. For me, to dance is to feel most alive. The gift of dance saved my life; without it, I may not be alive. I used to squirm hearing the words, “You’re a dancer.” I thought to myself and aloud, I'm much more than a dancer. Today, I still squirm being called “a dancer.” To dance is the highest of doing the UNIVERSE, God, Buddhas, Allah, works. Dancers, I salute you! Thank you for making space for me in these rooms. I don't own the rights to the use of this song. “Hare Krishn
Hello Beautiful, People! “Strange Fruit”, Billie Holiday. This woman though deeply suffering took on the great responsibility through her art, to speak to the injustice of Black Americans! As I sit in my hotel alone in German, I mourn, the little black boys and girls, that chances were taken away, to grow to be Women and Men. It’s Strange Fruit. Doing a show like “Hairspray” auf Deutsch confuses me. Yet, I know my mission is greater than the prejudices we still face. Today, I feel so raw.

To my ride-or-die BITCH! We been though some stuff the last two years! He told me 5 years ago, “I am not an ASSHOLE. I can’t be one. So, if that’s what you want I’m not the one.” You see, I pick ASSHOLES to “fix up.” Prove how “strong” I am. Validate how I used to feel about myself. I began to see the pattern; I changed it. What also did for me was: UPGRADE MY WHOLE LIFE! The financial, emotional, and spiritual struggles I faced began to ease away. Before we PUT A RING on it, he said simply:
Morning Beautiful People! My Stay At Home series! I'm enjoying myself having great conversations with friends. Listening to Oprah. Enjoying my couch. Eating and cooking lots. I will end this year Happy, Joyous, and Free! I will begin this new year, Happy, Joyous, Abundant, Healthy, and Free. May we all be blessed. May we all be happy. May we all be healthy, in this life! Love, Pennycandie @kevinjz7 thanks for your musical inspirations. #vienna #blackartists #pennycandie #williampenelopebriscoe
I love Christmas so much! Despite the year I’ve had, I’ve been fortunate and blessed. Others happiness makes me happy. All I’ve ever truly wanted was the feeling of authentically connecting with others. But, as an adult, so many others things gets in the way- if you let it. Love you, @Pentatonix Thanks for your amazing work!

Noch 2 Tage bis zu meinem Geburtstag. ( 2 more days until my birthday). Unfortunately, Corona had other plans for us. Our premier show has been postponed until next week. We were so ready to give our best tonight! However, the UNIVERSE knows all. Can't wait to perform “Ohne Dich” live, when the time comes. For now, I rest. Go home to Vienna. Meditate, journal, prepare tax stuff, and eat A lot! See you soon, Nuremberg! #nurembergcode #germany #williampenelopebriscoe #artist #singer #dancer #actor #love
