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

Fun, campy show that wraps up in 1 1/2 hours. Takes me back to my teenage days! I almost thought about taking my own teenagers, but I think it is better suited the generation that remembers the music and appreciates the inside movie jokes (i.e., her "Austrialian accent.") The local TV advertising is misleading - don't expect to see Cheyenne Jackson and other members of the original Broadway cast.

Slight, fluffy light musical comedy (and short). Some nice songs and fun performances, but pretty bland most of the time. The broad humor got a little annoying towards the end. Go only if you can get a discount, not worth full price.
Put a bunch of smash hit songs, Tony® Award nominee Douglas Carter Beane and the cutest couple in town into a Broadway musical comedy blender, and what do you get? "Heaven on Wheels," says The New York Times.
Taking audiences back to 1980 California, this hilarious new musical follows the beautiful Kira, who travels to earth to inspire a struggling young artist named Sonny, as she helps this aspiring painter to find his voice, discover true love and build the world’s first roller disco (not necessarily in that order).
