This show was awesome! I'd never seen Kiss of the Spider Woman before, but I'd heard good things and knew the general premise. When I walked into the theater, I was surprised by how small it was and wondered how the staging would work - but it was great, they were very clever with staging in a tight area and I thought it worked better than it would have in a larger theater. The performances all around were wonderful; I found myself at the edge of my seat at times - I wish I hadn't seen it so close to the end of the run so that I could have gone again!
_Kiss of the Spider Woman _
Music by John Kander
Lyrics by Fred Ebb
Book by Terrence McNally
Directed by Peter Marston Sullivan
Serving an eight-year sentence in a Latin American prison for homosexuality, Luis regularly escapes the torture and humiliation by inventing a fantasy world of movies starring the vampy diva Aurora. But his ability to escape reality is tested by his new cellmate, a Marxist revolutionary named Valentin. For despite falling in love with Valentin, Luis has been co-opted by the prison warden and the secret police to get information out of his cellmate in exchange for early parole. Can Luis’ fantastical tales of Aurora and her Spider Woman character help navigate the dangerous events of the real world?
Kiss of the Spider Woman won the Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score when it debuted on Broadway. A harrowing tale of torture and political oppression, this musical nonetheless embraces hope and the beauty of love.
