Event Description

The Tony-award winning musical KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN tells the tale of two cell mates in a Latin American prison – one a Marxist revolutionary, the other a gay window dresser – who form a bond in captivity. As their friendship deepens, the window dresser escapes into a fantasy world of the movies he loved most as a child, conjuring a beautiful enchantress to pass the time and ease the pain – a spider woman, who kills with her kiss. Juxtaposing gritty realities with liberating fantasies, KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN revamps a harrowing tale of persecution into a dazzling spectacle.
