Kitten Solloway's THE KEEPIN' COZY SHOW to Return Off-Broadway at The Player's Theatre

An improvised play around a faded starlet's attempt at a comeback, hosted by Kitten Solloway (creator Annie-Sage Whitehurst).

Kitten Solloway's THE KEEPIN' COZY SHOW to Return Off-Broadway at The Player's Theatre Largely unscripted and intimately broken, "The Keepin' Cozy Show" will return to The Players Theatre on August 17th at 7pm with a brand new and darkly comic variety show, featuring "Hollywood's Most Available Ingenue" and America's favorite open wound, Kitten Solloway.

An improvised play around a faded starlet's attempt at a comeback, this "show and tell for showbiz folks and shadow selves" is hosted by Kitten Solloway (creator Annie-Sage Whitehurst) who leads a kooky cast of rotating special guests through a hilarious experiment in drama, improv, nostalgia, queerness, and the cost of comfort. August's show is the second installment of Kitten's story at The Players Theatre, following a successful and murder-free premiere in June. August's show features working actor and "well-adjusted" former child star Josh Flitter (Ace Ventura Pet Detective, Nancy Drew) as this month's Favorite Friend(TM), and everyone is eagerly anticipating a night of fun and absolutely no surprises or betrayal. Also joining the show is improviser/musician Robert Price (ComedySpotz, The Rust Brothers) on strings/emotional support, and of course, Kitten's gaba-Gal Friday, the cheesy and connected Carmine Limoncello (played by Sal Joseph).

"The Keepin' Cozy Show" at The Players Theatre stars Kitten Solloway, a would-be titan of Hollywood, in a format that is equally inspired by The Judy Garland Show, bohemian artist salons, and late-night talk shows. There are several opportunities for audience participation, although not required ("leave me alone" tickets are available for an additional charge, see below). Each show is presented in installments, picking up wherever we left off on Kitten's quest for self-fulfillment, to find and understand permanence, and above all else, to be #bookedandblessed.

The Keepin' Cozy Show was created during NYC's 2020 Lockdown, and first aired as part of the comedy network @SociallyDistantLive's InstagramLive weekly programming in March 2020. After restrictions lifted in NYC (and after 50+ weekly shows in character), Kitten Solloway has graced stages, backrooms and basements across Manhattan, Brooklyn and Queens.
