Actor Therapy Summer Cabaret Series at Don’t Tell Mama

ALIXE WARD, July 21st at 9:30PM

Have you ever been on a weird date (or in the bathroom) and wondered, “Has this ever happened to anyone else?” – yes it has, and it was bad. If it would embarrass you to discuss with your Nana, our beloved Pope Francis, or Dame Julie Andrews then it’s certain to come up at Alixe Ward’s debut cabaret performance. Poop, puberty, parties, and panties fly in this awkward confabulation of what it means to like someone.


Alixe Ward is a proud Texas native and a University of Tulsa alum. Alixe has performed at Ogunquit Playhouse (Grease) and Casa Mañana (Les Mis and Grease) and will continue to work regionally as long as the food is good. Favorite credits include Avenue Q (Kate Monster/Lucy T. Slut), Hello, Dolly! (Minnie Fay), and The Drowsy Chaperone (Janet). Proud member of AEA.

Join Kyle Coughlin at his debut NYC solo cabaret with a night of laughs, gasps, and epitaphs as he grabs his best vanity hand mirror and reflects… Because in order to move forward, he must look back.



TESS RICHIE, August 11th at 9:30PM

For an evening that’s sure to get you laid, head over to Tess Richie's debut cabaret! Looking for love in all the wrong places? You’re in good company. Tess will air her dirty laundry and offer dating advice in between sultry jazz tunes and new interpretations of contemporary hits.

Mariel was most recently sailing throughout Europe and Asia (first time out of the country!), performing as a featured singer on the maiden voyage of Royal Caribbean's Ovation of the Seas.
