What is a kiki?: If you wake up the morning after this party and remember what happened, then it wasn't a real kiki.

Tell us about Restoration Comedy:
This show is a lot of Sex and Comedy, but don't let that distract you from its huge heart. It calls for such bravery and generosity, both to be in it and to watch it. Whether you're in the audience or on stage, you must open yourself up to anything, and just say yes.

Describe Restoration Comedy in 3 words:
Butts, hilarity, and a barrel.

Who do you play in Restoration Comedy?: Berinthia, Amanda's "little cousin," all grown up now. You'll have to wait until the second act to find out more...

What’s the most outrageous costume you wear in Restoration Comedy?: A mud face mask and little else.

Which cast member is the naughtiest?:
Hmm, very hard to choose just one, but if not me, then the whore with the facial hair.

Sexiest?: Loveless certainly caught my eye, but I don't discriminate. I want it ALL!

Most likely to deceive?: Well, I certainly have a gift for deception.

What is your signature dance move?:
The sultry slither.

What Scissor Sisters song would best describe you?:
"Any Which Way"

Why should we come see Restoration Comedy?:
Do you want to be turned on, joyful, loved and loving, wanting to celebrate and feeling yourself celebrated as well? Then you should definitely come see this play. It does exactly what theater should, and turns the entire cast and audience into a single victorious community.
