19-Year-Old Composer/Lyricist Billy Recce to Bring 'THE PERKS OF BEING A SNOWFLAKE' to Feinstein's/54 Below

Feinstein's/54 Below, Broadway's Supper Club, presents The Perks of Being A Snowflake: Songs by Billy Recce on July 7th at 9:30, featuring Recce, a band of seven and a cast of some of New York's finest and funniest talents.

Billy Recce (NYMF's Youngest Ever Composer for Balloon Boy: The Musical ) 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 is one of the youngest composer/lyricists to have a solo show at 54 Below! Called " an imaginative, charismatic writer with a nimble, fiery pulse", Recce's songs are tuneful, poignant and shamelessly laugh in the faces of Betsy DeVos, Neo-Nazis, "LaLa Land" and beyond.

Leading the lineup of performers is Lindsay Nicole Chambers ( Kinky Boots , Lysistrata Jones ), Lynn Craig (David Bowie's Lazarus ), Laura Laureano ( Shrek: The Musical ) and Patrick Swailles Caldwell ( PharmaBro ).

Also slated to perform are Roger Dawley, Victoria Duffy, Alexa Joseph, Sarah Lazarus, and Rachel Ravel ("Rachel Unraveled"). Recce's team of musicians includes Laurel Albinder, Jimmy Bie, Vinny Carlino, David Moses, Adam Mastrocola, and Rocco Recce.

A portion of the proceeds from the concert will benefit the ACLU.

The Perks of Being A Snowflake: Songs by Billy Recce plays Feinstein's/54 Below (254 West 54th Street) on July 7th at 9:30 PM. There is a $25-35 cover charge and $25 food and beverage minimum. Tickets and information are available at www.54Below.com. Tickets on the day of performance after 4:00 are only available by calling (646) 476-3551.
