ABOUT THE SHOW

This is Me Everyday is a concert based performance with standing microphone and piano accompaniment that explores the life and development to date of Frank Borrelli a queer gay male. Navigating society’s norms while singing songs owned by the patriarchy and professing love for the women who saved and defended him throughout his life is his own Odyssey of sorts. Songs from the American songbook, cultural songs, and Broadway standards mark milestones in the life of a person who is learning the world while recognizing the few places for him to exist in it. It is a celebration of survival,  an acceptance of  personal tragedy and unrequited love with a heap of wit and love for humanity.
