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

Stone Soup Theatre announces the Seattle debut of the late Horton Foote’s The Young Man from Atlanta, winner of the 1995 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Revisiting characters first seen in Foote’s nine-play magnum opus, The Orphans Home cycle, this elegant and heart-rending drama was written near the end of a career that includes over 52 stage plays, several screenplays and two Academy Award wins (screenplays for Tender Mercies and To Kill A Mockingbird).
In this compassionate and occasionally humorous portrait of an affluent family's transformation as they face significant mid-life losses, Foote’s characters reveal secrets and confront truths they had been unwilling to examine until crises force them to reevaluate the true meaning of “success”.
Directed by Maureen Hawkins (Durang7), audiences are promised a subtle, yet unsettling theatrical journey as one American dream crumbles and the foundation for an uncertain future, a new American reality is begun. The production also features the talents of Eva Abram, John Clark, Gordon Coffey, Jaryl Draper, Matthew Gilbert, Maggie Heffernan, Maria Knox, Maureen Miko, Lindsey Morck, Zachariah Robinson, Chris Scofield, Suzi Tucker, Michael Way and Carolynne Wilcox.
Due to mature subject matter, the play is recommended for audiences ages 14 and older.
