Actor Kyle Post discussed his nerve-wracking audition for Broadway’s “Kinky Boots,” revealing in an episode of Broadway Sandwich that the original casting call asked for a “true triple-threat singer,” and referenced Beyoncé.

“Singer, actor, dancer. If you think you’re Beyoncé, you’re close — this ain’t a job for no wallflower,” Post remembered during Episode 3 of the ALL ARTS show. “That was the description for the role.”

Post, who ended up landing a spot as one of the Angels, sang Carrie Underwood’s “Before He Cheats” in a lower register during his audition. It didn’t go exactly as planned, he said.

“[Director] Jerry Mitchell was like, ‘can you do it higher?'” Post recalled. “I’m like, ‘I’m gonna crack.’ And he’s like, ‘I don’t care.'”

Post went on to sing in the higher register and his voice did indeed crack. “I said, ‘Ooh girl, I sound like Harvey Fierstein’ — to Harvey Fierstein.”
