The line between fantasy and reality becomes increasingly blurred in this smash musical about escape and the transportive power of love. Created by John Kander and Fred Ebb, the songwriting team that penned Chicago and Cabaret, and four-time Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally, Kiss of the Spider Woman was the winner of seven Tony Awards in 1993, including Best Musical. It's the story of two cellmates in a Latin American prison -- Valentin, a Marxist revolutionary, and Molina, a gay window dresser. Molina survives his jailers' torture and humiliation by escaping to a fantasy world filled with the movies he loved as a child, conjuring a beautiful and beguiling screen enchantress named Aurora as his imaginary diva. As the relationship between Valentin and Molina becomes increasingly complicated, so too do Molina's over-the-top fantasies, which begin threatening to overtake his real life. Learn More

When the Soviets set out to create a Broadway musical, they decide they'll need to bring in some real New York writers - by force, if necessary. Enter Howard and Murray, two down and out musical theatre writers, who are on the brink of throwing in the towel. Kidnapped, taken to Moscow, and forced to fix the worst musical ever written, these two characters suddenly find themselves working under the gun…literally! With an uproarious and upbeat score, Iron Curtain is a knock 'em down hit with laughs at every corner.
