"Described as the Lena Dunham of NYC musical theatre writers, Kailey Marshall's songs have been featured at 54 Below, Joe's Pub, the Highline Ballroom and more," according to press notes. "However, this marks the first stand-alone cabaret for the award-winning composer. The show will feature a whole party of Broadway's hottest performers singing the sharp witted songs from Confirmed–a musical which tells the story of a rebellious teen who asks the wrong questions and starts the right fires at the Catholic school she's forced to attend. The night will also feature a riotous collection of world-premiere songs."
Marshall won the Fresh Pens Contest in July with her song "Give It Up" from her musical Confirmed, which was also presented as the Pace New Musicals Lab in January 2014.
54 Below is located at 254 West 54th Street. Cover charge starts at $18 plus a $25 food and beverage minimum. For tickets, visit 54Below.com or call (646) 476-3551.
Kailey Marshall: "Charlie Ain't Home" by ZZ Ward. The epitome of sin to me is being in bed with someone else when your man isn't home. This song has a sexy, sinful sound that I ADORE.
Katie Ladner: "My Humps" by the Black Eyed Peas. …Partly because it's my guilty pleasure "getting ready" song, and then the whole video is sinful really.
Adam Cates: "My Body" from The Life. Why would you not want to listen to those amazing women belt out that tune over and over? You know you danced around your dorm room lip-syncing that one into a hairbrush… (Boys, I'm talking to you!)
Jeff Heimbrock: What's sinful? Wicked. Saycon Sengbloh's rendition of "No Good Deed" is a combination of a ruthless diva matched with our favorite green character, Elphaba.
Listen to the original version of "No Good Deed":
Andy Kuusisto: "Folsom Prison Blues" by Johnny Cash. It contains the line, "I shot a man in Reno just to watch him die." There's no good reason for killing, but that's gotta be the worst.
Chaz Williams-Ali: "Me and Mrs. Jones" (Billy Paul). Being a lover of old-school music and R&B, nothing comes to mind that's more sinful than this one! This has to be the best affair song of all time!
Cortney Wolfson: "We Found Love" (Rihanna feat. Calvin Harris). I love this song, and I always secretly feel guilty enjoying it so much — the events that inspired it are horrible! But still, it's in my "most-played" and the music video is super sexy and sinfully wrong — I guess that's why it's so famous!
Anna Ty Bergman: I'm gonna go with "Darling Nikki" by Prince. The first time I heard it, as a very innocent teenager, I was in shock and awe. I made up a not-so-innocent, tweeny-awkward dance to it and, for that reason, I am grateful YouTube didn't exist then.
Caitlin Kinnunen: "Just Like a Pill" (P!nk). I remember listening to P!nk growing up. I was probably 10 or so and had no idea what the lyrics actually meant. Then one day I figured it out, and I thought I was SO scandalous!
Emily Rogers: "Peaches & Cream" by 112. This was a favorite song of mine as a young gal because I thought the song was about eating ice cream. Interestingly enough I have recently come to find out it is about eating something entirely different.
Tatiana Lofton: We all know Jessie J can sing, but she unleashed her sinful dirty dancing side in this video of "Do It Like a Dude." She served the ultimate swerve. Jessie let the slick fellas know that she can turn around and do it better then it's ever been done.
Adam Levy: "Hadestown" (Anaïs Mitchell). This song just makes me want to bathe in whiskey. Anaïs Mitchell is a force, ya'll…
Mary Claire Miskell: "Miriam" (Norah Jones). A creepy/sexy revenge song is the only way to go for my sinful song of choice. Yes, it's THE lovely Norah Jones of "Don't Know Why" singing about murdering someone. Brilliant.
Daniel Quadrino: "Restart" (Sam Smith). Sam Smith is force to be reckoned with. The song speaks for itself.
Dan DeLuca: When I heard that I had to think of my favorite sinful song, my mind immediately went to cartoon villains singing. Was hard to narrow it down from Jafar, Ursula, Oogie Boogie, etc., but we often forget about the underrated Rasputin and Anastasia. Enjoy.
Victor Legrá: "F*ck Me Pumps" by Amy Winehouse. The Queen of Sin, Amy Winehouse, knows best. She knows how to work the runway and grab everyone's attention the moment she walks through the door. Here is to the anthem of sin.
