"Magnificent!  Flawless!  5 Stars!" - Grigware Talks Theatre

Based on the novel by Manuel Puig, "Kiss of the Spider Woman" revamps a harrowing tale of persecution into a dazzling spectacle that juxtaposes gritty realities with liberating fantasies. Thrown together in a Latin American prison, Valentin is a tough revolutionary being tortured for political information, and Molina is an unabashed homosexual serving eight years for deviant behavior. Molina shares his fantasies about a movie actress named Aurora with Valentin to help him mentally escape from the horrors of the prison. One of Aurora’s movie roles is a Spider Woman who kills with a kiss. Two unlikely cellmates, Valentin and Molina play a breathless cat-and-mouse game as they struggle to survive.

Director Nick DeGruccio and Choreographer Lee Martino create an intimate chamber piece with this brilliant musical, accompanied by a live six-member orchestra, bringing the action of the show literally close enough to touch.
