Additional Information

“One of the Best Concerts of 2014…this singer and pianist put on “A Girl Named Bill,” a revue-with-dialogue about Billy Tipton, the little-known midcentury jazz bandleader, who was assumed to be a man but was discovered at his death to be a woman. Under deceptively ragged humor and a wildly broad repertory illuminating various angles of the story — by Jelly Roll Morton, Yoko Ono, Cindy Walker and Ms. McKay herself — lay a devastating theme: how, and why, to live with secrets.”  – Ben Ratliff, The New York Times 

"Her last two 'cabaret' shows I saw have been jaw-dropping. They both completely subverted the genre…Among Ms. McKay's charms, Mr. Byrne said, “are the ways she playfully mixes what he called a “tragic noir vibe” with her “wicked sense of humor.” David Byrne 

“Look under the frothy surface, and “A Girl Named Bill” is a serious exploration of stereotypes and gender identity role playing, all from a feminist perspective.” – Stephen Holden, The New York Times 

"…the artistic highlight of the summer... I have long suspected McKay of being a real genius and this engagement proved it in spades…her most lucid, comprehensive, and fully committed portrayal yet…the kind of empathy that only a true artist can muster.”  – David Noh, Gay City News
