Songs For Slutty Girls is a collection of experiences that examine the ecstasy, pain, and hilarity of sex through a year in the life of one woman, who is represented by four aspects of her personality: Head, Heart, Gut, and Hips. At the start of the new year, our protagonist hopes to make some big changes. Will she succeed or fall back into faking org*sms and flirting with fuck boys? This eccentric pop/rock score gives voice to the sexual moments in our lives that define us, for better or worse. Songs For Slutty Girls is about finding yourself on the path toward sexual liberation.

“I started writing Songs For Slutty Girls when I was 20. I looked at the musical theatre cannon and realized that there weren’t any funny, truthful songs about sex or sexuality from the female perspective,” said writer Kailey Marshall. “That morphed into this show that chronicled a particularly tumultuous year in my sex/relationship life. The songs turned into a way for me to process all of my emotions around love and sex. My hope for this show is that it’s an opportunity to dance in your seat, drunk text your ex, and realize that you’re not alone in this crazy world of sex and dating.” 

Songs For Slutty Girls is produced by Emis Entertainment, and general managed by Visceral Entertainment. William Spinnato serves as Stage Manager. All actors are appearing courtesy of Actors’ Equity Association.
