BILLY RECCE IS 21 Comes to Green Room 42

Billy Recce is 21, a rollicking new concert celebration, will play the Green Room 42 for one night only on December 14 at 9:30.

Taking a cue from Stephen Sondheim and all of your other favorite PBS birthday specials, New York's favorite Snowflake is coming to the Green Room 42 in a raucous, over-the-top evening of music, laughter and eventual inebriation. The theatre scene's youngest, award-winning composer/lyricist is about to lose his most profitable gimmick-his age! So join Recce (Balloon Boy: The Musical, Broadwayworld's "Rachel Unraveled"), a kicks ass band, and a cluster of special guests and sultry snowflakes for an evening of songs that laugh in the face of Betsy DeVos, Tomi Lahren, Neo-Nazis and beyond. Plus, if you come, you won't have to write on his wall.

The cast of this evening will include special guests Lindsay Nicole Chambers (Lysistrata Jones, Submissions Only)?, Travis Kent (Disaster!)?, Laura Laureano (Shrek: The Musical), ?Ryan Koerber (A Chorus Line), Tyler Lenhart (A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder), Rachel Ravel (Rachel Unraveled), and FOREST VAN DYKE. Also performing are Roger Dawley, ?David Wilson?, SARAH RACHEL LAZARUS?, MADDY BAKER, ?VICTORIA DUFFY, and JORDANA KAGAN. The evening will also include several surprise performers.

The band for this evening includes Adam Mastrocola (Drums), Sean Cortese (Bass), Ashley Everhart (Alto Sax) and David Moses (Violin). Billy Recce IS 21 is stage managed by Emma McSharry and Assistant stage managed by Max Breit. 

General admission is $20, there is no food/drink minimum. The Green Room 42 is located at 570 Tenth Ave in Manhattan. Tickets and additional information are available here.
