Kiki Time with...Matthew Cox

Name: Matthew Cox 
Hometown: Rowlett, TX

Education: I received my B.F.A. from Tarleton State University in Stephenville, TX (The Cowboy Capital of the World!...Really.) I also attended the Stella Adler Studio of Acting for a Summer Intensive and I have been through the training center at The Upright Citizen's Brigade Theater.

What is a kiki?: Everyone has their own personal kiki. Perhaps it's that perfect level of peace for which we all strive toward. Or maybe it involves lots of drinking and loud music. I like the second one.

Tell us about Restoration Comedy: Restoration Comedy is a full on theatrical party. It's got everything you need for a good time. Beautiful music! Dancing! A hilarious/ bawdy/ touching plot all about love! Action! More Music! Booze! And the costumes! Beautiful Costumes!

Describe Restoration Comedy in 3 words: Filthy Sexy Gorgeous. (See what I did there?)

Who do you play in Restoration Comedy?:
I play the part of Tunbelly (Hoyden's Father who shows up to make trouble.) Along with that I am one of the hosts for the evenings events and I play some instruments.

What’s the most outrageous costume you wear in Restoration Comedy?: That would probably be a pair of white boxers and a mask with rabbit ears. Also, I've got glow paint on. Which I just remembered I did not clean off my back.

Which cast member is the naughtiest?:
I think who isn't might be the easier question. Although I have to say Jen Tsay seems to really enjoy walking around without clothes on.

Sexiest?: Stephen Stout can pull off a pair of heels better than anyone I've ever seen.

Most likely to deceive?: Finn Kilgore. I don't trust something in those eyes.

What is your signature dance move?: The ol' shopping for groceries on the top shelf is a go to for me.

What Scissor Sisters song would best describe you?:
I'll go with “Filthy Gorgeous” for this one too.

Why should we come see Restoration Comedy?:
Because it just might change your life. Or at least put you on a high that will last the rest of it. I dare you to try and not have the best time. Ever. But really, it's wonderful, the people are lovely, and there's free drinks. It's like 5 different evenings rolled into one.
