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 talented cast, each providing it's own personality towards a very successful interplay of dialogue. Although plenty of laughs provided, a strong thread of of our own actual experiences and prejudices was ever present..........terrific.
This show is recommended for those age 16 or older due to language, mature content and sexual themes.
