Set to star in our dazzling new production of Cole Porter’s classic musical comedy, Kiss Me, Kate, meet the fiercely fabulous and show-stoppingly beautiful Tiffany Graves who will be singing the role of Lois/Bianca.
When’s your birthday?
I’m a Gemini Summer baby – very fitting for the split personality of an actress.
Where do you call home?
Somewhere between Richmond in West London and my suitcase on the company tour truck. My father was in the army, so we moved around a lot when I was growing up, so whether I’m in Leeds or London, as long as I’ve got decent WiFi, wherever I lay my hat I’m home.
3 words to describe touring?
Planes, Trains & Automobiles.
What was the last hobby you started?
I love Bikram Yoga, am addicted to spiralizing or Nutri-Bulleting anything I can get my hands on whilst home in my kitchen, and I greatly enjoy hunting for the perfect dry martini when out on the town.
What do you think is a recipe for a successful relationship?
Oh sure, I tell you, then you tell someone else, and then pretty soon the whole world knows, then it won’t be my special little secret! ;-) My husband likes cats, and I like dogs, but we’ve each learned to love both.
What excites you these days?
Seeing friends shine in new theatrical productions is always the greatest thrill.
If you had to listen to one piece of music for the rest of your life what would it be?
“The Clog Dance” from the ballet “La Fille Mal Gardée” – because it never fails to make me smile. Or “Not a Day Goes By” from Stephen Sondheim’s “Merrily We Roll Along” – because it never fails to make me cry.
What would be the title of your biography?
“From Cradle to Graves – the Secret Diary of a Showgirl.”
Kiss Me, Kate opens at Leeds Grand Theatre on 21 September and runs until 31 October (only 8 performances) before touring throughout England. For more information, including dates, times and venues, please visit kissmekatethemusical.co.uk
