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

Very well done! Really enjoyed the show and the story was very moving at times. This was the first live theater show my boyfriend has seen and he really enjoyed it too. Would recommend this show to others and I will take family to this show if they come for a visit this fall.
Mark Twain’s great American novel gets re-told by Huckleberry Finn himself in this Tony-award winning musical. Fearful of his Pap’s drunken rage, Huck fakes his own death and hightails it to the river to help his friend Jim escape from slavery. On the way, they’ll encounter kings, thieves, and angry mobs on this grand adventure through the South. Chock-full of bluegrass, blues, and country tunes by Roger Miller, Big River recounts Huck’s trials of considerable trouble and considerable joy.
