Quotes & Highlights

Prelude to a Kiss is titled after a torch song by Duke Ellington. In 1992, a film was made based on the play, starring Meg Ryan and Alec Baldwin.


Immediately after a young couple named Peter and Rita have exchanged wedding vows, an unknown elderly man asks to kiss the bride. As he does, Rita’s soul and the old man’s magically exchange bodies. Neither Peter nor the wedding guests grasp what has happened. Peter leaves the wedding with a woman he believes is Rita. During their honeymoon, he comes to realize that Rita’s body is no longer inhabited by Rita’s true personality. He must find the old man, and keep his love for Rita alive… despite the fact that she is now in an unattractive body.

Prelude to a Kiss features Andrew Eddins as “Peter;” Penni Mendez as “Rita;” and, Dave Pomeroy as “The Old Man.” Other cast members include Micah Epstein, Valerie Carpenter Bernstein, Ryan Balint, Sue McNulty, John C. Hughes, Anthony Avery, Anne-Marie Somers, Tiara Coleman, Jay Somers, Steve Goldstein, and Ann Pomeroy. Directing this extraordinary journey through fantasy and reality is Gillen Brey.
