Actor Tituss Burgess (AB Music 2001) was recently nominated for an Emmy Award for the third time, profiled in the Washington Post:
Even in a show as whacked-out and packed with funny people as Netflix’s doomsday-cult comedy “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” Titus Andromedon has a way of stealing a scene.
The character, an actor with a voice from the heavens and a wardrobe from a costume shop’s clearance aisle, once sang in the streets of New York in a frilly yellow dress like Beyoncé, and used a house cat in his audition for “The Lion King.”
Titus Andromedon is the id of “Kimmy Schmidt,” its most meme-able character, its walking, talking glitter.
Great people following their passion to do amazing things. Congratulations, Mr. Burgess. The Franklin College is very proud of you and your work.
