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
Reviews & Ratings
Audiences will laugh (and cry) their way into the New Year with Tom Stoppard’s Tony Award-winning comedy, Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead. Zany humor, quicksilver wordplay, gripping tension and a heady swirl of ideas all come together in this story of two nobodies who long to star in their own story.
SPT's revival, directed by Artistic and Education Director Shana Bestock, casts local actresses in traditionally male roles. Angela DiMarco (The 13th of Paris) and Alyssa Keene (Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol) take on Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, with Heather Hawkins (End Days, Mauritius) as The Player.
The cast also features Matt Aguayo, Ray Gonzalez, Julie Jamieson (Arms and the Man), Kenna Kettrick (The Best Christmas Pageant Ever), Patrick Lennon (Jacob Marley's Christmas Carol), Jessa Lowe, John Murray (Of Mice and Men, Mauritius) and Duncan Weinland (The Best Christmas Pageant Ever).
