Kristen would like to dedicate this performance to her daughters Estella and Gabrielle whose laughter is infectious and grasp of physical comedy is almost impossible to mimic. To Mickey and the cast and production crew - Thank you for such a wonderful opportunity to entertain with laughter, something we all need plenty more of. Special thanks to MS, JN and MP who are always willing to talk the “method” to death at anytime, and my husband Dean who is always willing to sit through it
