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 powerful theatre experience. All actors were great, but standouts -- Charles Norris as Franco, Kevin McKeon as Arthur were perfect as employee/employer then fully developed friends.
The support roles had realife stories to play out and make you feel apart of Chicago in the 60s. Well done!
This show contains some coarse language and is thematically appropriate for those age 10 and older.
October 14, 2012 at 2:00pm: A town hall discussion moderated by Seattle Deputy Mayor Darryl Smith follows the show. Topics include the themes of community presented in Superior Donuts, and how the play reflects our own ever-shifting cultural landscape.
