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

Though not on quite the same high plane as Reza's ART, this is a consistently entertaining comedy, with a few moments of side-splitting hilarity. The remarkable performance of Bhama Roget, a Seattle actress clearly destined for greater things, offers some of the most amazing physical comedy I have seen in a lifetime of theatre-going. And the ensemble playing of the cast as a whole, in a vehicle that totally depends upon it, is something of a marvel.
God of Carnage
by Yasmina Reza, directed by Wilson Milam
Running Time: 90 minutes, no intermission
This 90-minute thrill ride takes the audience into the most dangerous place on earth: parenthood. An innocent squabble over a playground incident becomes an all-out, fur-flying, hilarious brawl between two couples in this new play from Yasmina Reza (Art). God of Carnage stormed Broadway, nabbing the 2009 Tony for Best Play and earning knock-out reviews.
