STOW YOUR BAGGAGE by Alexx Rouse
The world premiere of flight attendant school drop out comedy at the 2019 Cincinnati Fringe Festival
(CINCINNATI, OHIO) STOW YOUR BAGGAGE by Alexx Rouse is a comedy solo show premiering at Cincinnati Fringe on June 4th and will not hesitate to point out that there are plenty of wonderfully qualified flight attendants in this world. Alexx is just not one of them. But that won’t stop her from turning Art Academy Room 204 at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival into her test flight, hoping to prove that she’s worthy of getting hired anyway. Along the way Alexx makes sure to hit all of the marks of a good flight attendant: completing the safety speech, taking care of beverage service, all while entertaining the passengers with stories as well as booze. So put your tray tables in the all-right-let’s-talk position and enjoy the flight.
