Billy Anderson: #imwithripsey
March 4, 2017
“Billy Anderson sauntered onto the stage…genially insulting and cajoling his audience. Anderson has adopted a louche, fey personality…his manner relaxed.” – Joel Benjamin, Cabaret Scenes
Once upon an election night, an ardent Hillary supporter had a few too many, and his intoxicated alter ego Ripsey crashed the party, leading to an infamous public meltdown on social media. #imwithripsey is a musical comedy journey through one New Yorker’s hilarious and heartbreaking election night. Billy Anderson, nightlife fixture, reunites with accompanist Danny Katz, the original Jewish Japanese pop musician (recently back from a seven year stint in the Far East!). The dynamic duo pick up right where they left off for this very special reunion show featuring fresh arrangements of pop classics, plus songs you’ve never heard before that you will THINK were written by them. It’s a cabaret that thinks it’s a rock concert that thinks it’s a Broadway musical! With guest stars Andrew Boeckmann, Justin Cook, and featuring a special appearance by John C. Hume, this show is sure to tickle your funny bone!
