The Perks of Being a Snowflake: Songs by Billy Recce
July 7, 2017
“Recce is an imaginative, charismatic writer with a nimble, fiery pulse” – MHS Howler
He’s offensive, he’s irreverent—and he can’t buy liquor! Billy Recce (NYMF’s Youngest Ever Composer for Balloon Boy: The Musical, Rachel Unraveled) makes his Feinstein’s/54 Below debut in an evening of outrageous, irreverent and bitingly satirical musical theatre songs about what it means to be young, idealistic and emotionally vulnerable in America! After a successful New York concert debut at the York Theatre Company, his trunk of barely legal, musical debauchery is making its way uptown! Often compared to a young Tom Lehrer, nineteen year old Recce’s songs are tuneful, poignant and shamelessly laugh in the faces of Betsy DeVos, Neo-Nazis, Tomi Lahren and beyond.
Joined by a colorful cluster of the country’s most talented up-and-comers, an eight piece band, and maybe even a few special guests, this “Yuge”-ly original song cycle is an unmissable event that’ll trigger even the toughest snowflakes!
A portion of the proceeds from the concert will benefit the ACLU.
