“Go. See. It.”

Check out the review that Debra Kirouac from Woman Around Town just published about The SM Cabaret: Slaves of Sallie Mae!

She definitely enjoyed the show, and she urges you to “Go. See. It.”

The S.M. Cabaret: Slaves of Sallie Mae is not only fun but also an important play. While it does point out a lot of problems with the student loan system as they exist today — high interest rates, inflated costs of degrees, low-paying jobs vs. high debt — the show’s message is that even though most of these women are indebted, they’re still strong, talented performers who have something to say. – See more at: http://www.womanaroundtown.com/sections/living-around/the-fleecing-of-young-america-the-s-m-cabaret-slaves-of-sallie-mae-student-debt-stories-with-class-and-sass#sthash.Nwyurnkz.dpuf

The Grace Period Blog Premieres

THE S.M. CABARET: SLAVES OF SALLIE MAE

May 2nd and 9th @ 9:30pm

The Duplex

61 Christopher Street (NYC)

The Grace Period Blog invites you to their world premiere of The S.M. Cabaret: Slaves of Sallie Mae. In true cabaret fashion, it will be an evening of song, shimmy, and debauchery that will put a smart sexy spin on the student debt crisis. Naturally, a degree is included with every admission (interest-free). We could go on and on preaching about the downright criminal interest rates inflicted on American students and the astronomical rising cost of education, but it’s so much more entertaining with parody, champagne, and a little burlesque.

The Cabaret features adaptations and impersonations of classic Broadway songs and stars, as well as original songs and dances. There will be solo and ensemble works written and performed by The Grace Period Blog members: Sydney Arndt, Sarah Lucie, Gabriela Moreno, Laura Marie Mooney, and Katy Telfer. Rumor has it that the infamous Sallie Mae and the lesser known evil step-sister, The Great Lakes, may even make special appearances.

Reserve your ticket for $5 in advance by clicking here: Friday, May 2nd or Friday, May 9th

Or pay $7 at the door without a reservation. (NOTE: There is a 2 drink minimum at The Duplex.)

Can’t wait to see you there!

The Grace Period Blog

 

 The Grace Period Blog is committed to redefining the length of the student loan repayment grace period by continuing to build creative careers in writing and performance past the 6-month time allotment. They also encourage others to live the creative lives they planned on living despite their debt burdens.

 The Blog was co-founded by NYU MA Performance Studies Alumni, Gabriela Moreno and Sydney Arndt. The idea was born as a response to the contributors’ personal experience with the student debt crisis in America.  It became active as a blog in September of 2013 with the intention of creating content that would be used as raw material leading to a date-specific performance on November 21st, 2013—the end of the founders’ student loan grace period. This play, “November 21st,” premiered in Washington Square Park and incorporated public participation from audience members and passersby. Since then, The Grace Period Blog has continued exploring issues surrounding student debt while evolving its performance styles and expanding its body of contributors.
