Post A Quick Question.
We're studying Anything Goes at college this term, and for our next lesson we need to prepare the scene and song "You're The top".

So, I need to know what accent Billy has. (I don't know the show well at all)

Thanks in advance people. :)

American. Unless you mean more specific.

More specific would be nice, as i kinda guessed American.

Would a typical American/New York accent be alright?

American productions don't use anything more specialized than the "generic" accent for characters in the United States unless there is a special reason for it. Billy is from New York, so I guess if you want to do something specific just for the sake of doing it, that would be it... but there's really no need and you'll never see a real production do it.
