Kiki Time with...Kara Kaufman and Joey Stamp

Name: Kara Kaufman

Hometown: New York City

Education: BA in Literature from Harvard University

What is a kiki?: A restorative tete-a-tete, complete with fancy drinks and salacious gossip

Tell us about Restoration Comedy: It is the party of the season! In the play itself, bawdiness and wit collide in an homage to the genre of Restoration Comedy; and social intermissions with stunning vocal performances, a bottomless punch bowl, and time to get to know the very attractive and fascinating company members keep the festive atmosphere going all the way through to the culminating dance party.

Describe Restoration Comedy in 3 words: delightful, hilarious, sexy

Who do you play in Restoration Comedy?: I'm the stage manager

What’s the most outrageous costume you wear in Restoration Comedy?: I don't have a costume, much to everyone's dismay. At one point, I wore the blue and white corset and white skirt of Amanda's maids, but it was cut in the interest of practicality (the booth is up a very narrow, very twisty spiral staircase...)

Which cast member is the naughtiest?: Naomi Bland. When she looks at you through those long white eyelash extensions, there's always a naughty twinkle in her eye.

Sexiest?: Eloise Eonnet. She's beautiful, French, and has the voice of an angel. Sexiness incarnate.

Most likely to deceive?: Greg Engbrecht. He's got charm for days (when he wants to), a wicked sense of humor, and a mustache.

What is your signature dance move?: The good old step-touch to keep time as I'm calling cues during dance numbers. Sometimes I get fancy and add claps or snaps.

What Scissor Sisters song would best describe you?: "Night Work." Self explanatory :)

Why should we come see Restoration Comedy?: You'll fall in love with the play, the people, and the whole experience. Don't miss out!
