The performance was very professional for a small venue. The part played by Spider Woman was not good. She has a poor voice.

Two male leads were great! Unfortunately, the woman playing the spider woman was the weak link. Great sound from the pit.

Extraordinary production in a very small space. Terrific singing and dancing. Just don't go if overt homosexuality bothers you.

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...continued

Small theater space.Boxy equivalent to a thrust stage rather than a cabaret. The actors, especially the dancers, were right in front of me- less than 18" from my toes, somewhat unnerving, but they were good at handling the lack of distance . I...continued

I loved KotSW. I think it's one of Kander & Ebb's best and this production of it was fantastic. The performances were amazing - especially Valentin and Molina!! - and the music was great. The theater is TINY, but it helped the intimacy and urgency...continued

Strong performances from cast members. The intimate space adds greatly to the intensity of the piece. This was a very special performance.

Excellent production. Amazing staging. As a front row survivor, I was not struck by a dancer once, even tho I had to pull my feet under my seat to keep from tripping the performers! I had seen the movie and knew the story, but knew nothing about...continued

If you love musicals in an intimate setting which cover serious subject matter in a reverent and respectful manner, you will love Theatre Wit's interpretation of "Kiss of the Spider Woman!" The actors completely nailed it and I would wholly...continued

The show was very well done with a cast full of talent and energy. Everyone from the leads to the men in the chorus were excellent. I only wished they were able to have a larger orchestra but the musicians they had carried the music very well..

The artistic director of this show must be given a lot of credit. The stage was incredibly small, which can make a grand production challenging, but it was pulled off effortlessly thanks also in large part to a wonderful cast. Beautiful voices,...continued
