MISS ABIGAIL’S GUIDE TO DATING, MATING, & MARRIAGE

May 11, 2017 - Sep 17, 2017

CLO Cabaret

DR. RUTH MEETS EMILY POST IN THIS RAUCOUS COMEDY!
Paige Davis (TLC’s Trading Spaces) stars as Miss Abigail herself, the most sought-after relationship expert to the stars! Along with her sexy sidekick Paco, they’ll answer any and every one of your questions as they offer up outrageously funny "how-to's" on dating, mating and marriage including – how to perfect your kiss (it’s all about lip position), what you should and should not talk about on a date (don’t mention your troll doll collection) and much more. Kick back and relax as Miss Abigail imparts the expertise she honed before booty calls and speed-dating ruled – before the divorce rate was 50% and when ‘fidelity’ was more than an investment firm! You’ll improve your love life and strengthen your relationships well beyond her session. Oh, AND you’re sure to be laughing about love all night long – that’s the Miss Abigail guarantee! Adult Content
