Kiki Time with...Kelechi Ezie

Name: Kelechi Ezie

Hometown: Buffalo NY

Education: Princeton University, BA History/Theatre & Dance

What is a kiki?: A kiki is getting together to talk shit (excuse my French).

Tell us about Restoration Comedy: Restoration Comedy is a hilarious period comedy with anacrhonistic touches, with an un-subltle and timely message about Marriage Equality that I adore

Describe Restoration Comedy in 3 words: Shocking, Fun, Fabulous

Who do you play in Restoration Comedy?: I play the role of Hillaria, best friend to heroine Amanda. I also sing in the baroque pre-show, the half-time girl group, and I'm a cowgirl hairdresser in the Hoyden Country Scenes.

What’s the most outrageous costume you wear in Restoration Comedy?: During the Act II I look like a Niki Minaj impersonator

Which cast member is the naughtiest?: Probably Naomi! We are neighbors in Harlem and love to kiki on the way to and from the show

Sexiest?: Hmmm I'd love to be in a man sandwich with Brantley and Anthony… I've made it very clear to them at this point. The ball is in their court should they decide to date women lol.

Most likely to deceive?: Hmmm….I don't know. Maybe I've been fooled for too long already.

What is your signature dance move?: Beyonce Booty Bounce.

What Scissor Sisters song would best describe you?: "Keep Your Shoes" is a club banger I never tire of. Just makes me want to forget what I'm doing and dance. Well that is what I do backstage in-between scenes when it comes on!

Why should we come see Restoration Comedy?:Thirty young multi-talented actors, singing, dancing, voguing, and dragging. It's truly unlike anything you'll see elsewhere in New York! Plus corsets and wigs. Woot!
