A GIRL NAMED BILL the life and times of Billy Tipton
Actress, singer, songwriter, musician and satirist, Nellie McKay wraps up the 2016-2017 season by melding her talents into a uniquely entertaining and poignant, cabaret-indie-pop performance on April 15. McKay and her piano and ukulele have graced the Eccles stage twice in the past – always to standing ovations. Her newest work, “A Girl Named Billy,” is the story of musician Billy Tipton who, upon his death, was discovered to be a woman. A clever lyricist, clear-voiced singer and enchanting actress, McKay expertly walks the tightrope between humor and tragedy with wit and compassion.
