Kiki Time with...Alex Coelho
Hometown: New York City
Education: Carnegie Mellon (B.S. Mechanical Engineering), AMDA and The Barrow Group (Drama)
What is a kiki?: Besides a party for calming all your nerves? It is a reconnection to the inner part of you which is damn proud of who he is and is not ashamed to say it.
Tell us about Restoration Comedy: Restoration Comedy is a terrific homage to Plays of the Restoration period with a modern twist which incorporates the audience into the play experience and appeals to both the sentimentalist and nihilist in us.
Describe Restoration Comedy in 3 words: A wonderful party.
Who do you play in Restoration Comedy?: I am Toby, Sir Novelty Fashion's right hand man.
What’s the most outrageous costume you wear in Restoration Comedy?: Shoes and a bow tie. You could also say I wear a book.
Which cast member is the naughtiest?: Greg. I haven't actually caught him being naughty, but I have my suspicions.
Sexiest?: Steve. He always encompasses his character shamelessly . . . in a good way.
What is your signature dance move?: The strut.
What Scissor Sisters song would best describe you?: "I Don't Feel Like Dancing". Usually applies to me on account of my terrible dancing skills.
Why should we come see Restoration Comedy?: There is no other theater experience like it in the city. It's more of a celebration than a simple play experience.
