It was a chilly night on Broadway when Orion Venture Maximillian Fitz Griffiths emerged from a stage door, shuffled past fans, and began his nightly walk to his temporary flat.
He wore a T-shirt, no jacket, but the cold didn’t bother him. It’s no wonder. For his Broadway debut in the musical “Pippin,” Griffiths wears a skimpy vest and shorts that could make a Chippendales dancer blush.
A Broadway wardrobe is not the only first for Griffiths, a longtime Boston street performer and circus acrobat. At 25, he’s finally got a bank account and a place to stay that isn’t on wheels. “Pippin,” which originated this season at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, earned an impressive 10 Tony Award nominations on Tuesday.
