Lips Together, Teeth Apart Star Tracee Chimo’s Photo Stash!

first_img My favorite spot in the theater “I know this is weird, but my favorite place in almost every theater is the view from the audience. I find it comforting for some reason. In this case, at Second Stage, I like the very back of the house.” The crew member who saves my ass “Alisa. I do not know what I’d do without this gal. She’s got this [email protected]# down.” My favorite fan gift “A teenager from Russia brought this to me one night. I was beside myself. I love it.” The best thing to eat on a two-show day “Lentil soup from the Westerly. I know it looks like poop…but it’s my favorite soup! I love lentils!” My good luck charm “Nathan Lane and I shot a pilot together last year and became fast friends. I leaned on him a lot throughout the process of Lips Together. On opening night, he surprised me with two dozen roses. I dried them, and it feels like they bring me some luck every night.” The best costume piece I wear “Oh, I just think these are the sweetest bloomers I’ve ever seen. [Costume designer] Esosa and I picked ’em together.” The always hilarious Tracee Chimo is cracking up theatergoers in the Second Stage revival of Lips Together, Teeth Apart, the groundbreaking drama by Terrence McNally. Chimo plays Chloe, who along with her husband, brother and sister-in-law, spends Fourth of July on Fire Island for the first time. Chimo gave an all-access pass at the Tony Kiser Theater, showing us her favorite costumes, snacks, hiding spots and more. Check out her photo stash below, then see Lips Together, Teeth Apart off-Broadway through November 23! My favorite co-star “This guy, Michael Chernus. I’d do anything with him.” The first thing I take off after curtain call “This is my belt in act three, and every night after curtain call I literally rip it off my body before I get to the stairs that go up to our dressing room!” My must-have pre-show snack “Almond Greens smoothie from Green Symphony. I gotta drink this every day. I’m a sucker for almond butter. And this is the only way to get me to eat my veggies.” Selfie right before I go onstage “Act one, here we go! Time to make breakfast!” My view from the stage “Here it is! This is me standing right in front of the pool.” My view from the stage door “We don’t technically have a stage door at Second Stage, so I leave work every night the same way you leave when you see the show.” The coolest prop in the show “These glasses make me laugh every night when I get back to my dressing room after act two. Sally Jessy Raphael!” View Commentslast_img read more
