Singer/songwriter Kailey Marshall and her work have been accused of being many things including brazen, raw, and catchy AF. When she sits at the keys, dangerous diary entries and bad lovers become living legends through her lyrics and pop/rock hooks. Marshall has penned shows such as Confirmed, Songs for Slutty Girls, and Portrait of Jo, and was recently chosen as a composer in the New Dramatists Composer/Librettist Studio. Prepare to dance in the aisles, toast your best friend, and text your ex, because Marshall is sure to bring a night filled with heartbreaks turned into hit songs. Marshall will be joined by incredible musicians and a handful of guest performers from Broadway (TBA). Orchestrations provided by Paul DeVincenzo (Music Director to Elle King). Directed by Max Friedman.
