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

What do the Fates have in store for you? Why are you here?
All is revealed as Seattle cabaret luminaries Jayne Muirhead and John Engerman join forces to take you on a fool's journey of self-discovery. Drawing on oracle traditions from Tarot to palmistry to astrology, Muirhead and John Engerman will treat each audience to a unique evening of sublimely silly, unforgettable cabaret. Ancient themes collide with modern life as they twist classic tunes and blend forgotten gems with original songs.
Jayne and John teamed up in 1987 to create the ACT Songworks hit, Jayne's Adventures in Hell, followed by Indiana Jayne and the UFO, Jayne Unchained and The Once and Future Jayne. In 2005 they performed together in Menopause - the Musical with John as music director and Jayne as Earth Mother, earning a Seattle Footlight Award.
It's in the Cards also will feature several of Engerman’s original tunes, along with a generous helping of their signature tweaks and torques on music from the ‘30s through the ‘60s – and yes, even a smidge of classical music, too. With 30 years in show business, this husband and wife team are among Seattle’s musical theatre stars, and It’s In the Cards will demonstrate exactly why their brand of sublimely silly, unforgettable cabaret has been a hit with Seattle audiences for more than two decades.
