Ryan Scott Oliver and Nessie Nankivell present SONGS FOR SLUTTY GIRLS: A Song Cycle by Kailey Marshall, which will be presented Jan. 29th as part of THE REHEARSAL series at Don’t Tell Mama.
Directed by Max Friedman, with musical direction by Madeline Smith, performers at the 10 PM concert include Marshall, Kasie Gasparini (Mamma Mia), Molly Hager (Heathers), Katy Rea and Will Roland (The Black Suits).
Songs for Slutty Girls is a peppy, poppy, and potent exploration of female sexuality in the 21st century. From walks of shame to heartfelt revelations, Songs for Slutty Girls encapsulates the varied sexual landscape of dating in New York City. This song cycle seeks to redefine the word “slut” through a pop/rock score that captures the anger and ecstasy of the modern liberated woman.
Described as the Lena Dunham of NYC musical theatre writers, Kailey Marshall’s evocative and electric songs have been featured at 54 Below, Joe’s Pub, the Highline Ballroom and more. Kailey Marshall recently won the Fresh Pens Contest in July 2014 with her song “Give It Up” from her musical Confirmed.
