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

From 3:00 to 5:30pm, millions of viewers tune in to “Babs Gillespie on the Home Shopping Network.” With a 14k heart of gold, dangly jewelry, Babs jingle jangles like the gem that she is. But this rare bird is about to become extinct because tomorrow she is getting fired. Will our favorite On-The-Air personality survive this mid-life crisis or will she get dumped in the clearance bin with the Magi Peel Vegetable Peeler? This deliriously dark comedy sets Babs in the sale of her life as she grasps for love, happiness and sparkle.
