My Space: Mamma Mia! Tour Star Kaye Tuckerman Winds Down with Warm Feet and Hot Tea Backstage

June 15th, 2012 | By Staff

As Donna Sheridan in the national tour of the ABBA tuner Mamma Mia!, Kaye Tuckerman has to figure out which of her three former flames is the father of her daughter before she walks down the aisle. When she’s not involved in such strenuous familial affairs, Tuckerman kicks back in style backstage. Here, Tuckerman shows off her favorite dressing room items; take a look!

“Make up is essential. My brush kit is a big part of my life, plus my Iwata Airbrush, Temptu S/B foundations and fake tan for that island look!”
“Ricola cough drops are the bomb! I have tried so many lozenges, but these little guys are amazing for lubricating my throat in dry climates.”
“I am an herbal tea junkie. My gravity teapot is a total winner for loose-leaf tea. I am currently really into Dragon Pearl Tea (white tea and jasmine), but am known to blend my own with licorice, ginger, lemongrass and marshmallow root.”
“My UGG boots from Australia are a godsend, especially when we play the 4,000-seat arenas that are freezing.”
“My Mamma Mia! water bottles keep me hydrated throughout the show. I usually drink between four and six bottles of water each performance.”
See Kaye Tuckerman when Mamma Mia! dances into the Boston Opera House from June 19 through June 24.
