About the Show

KISS of the SPIDER WOMAN revamps a harrowing tale of persecution into a dazzling spectacle that juxtaposes gritty realities with liberating fantasies. Cell mates in a Latin American prison, Valentin is a tough revolutionary undergoing torture and Molina is an unabashed homosexual serving eight years for deviant behavior. Molina shares his fantasies about an actress, Aurora (originated on Broadway by Chita Rivera) with Valentin. One of her roles is a Spider Woman who kills with a kiss.

"Thrilling." – N.Y. Times.
"Compelling, beautiful, funny and moving....[Has] a cinematic fluidity and a poetic charge." – N.Y. Daily News.
"Creates an entire world out of a prison cell.... Dazzling." – Newsweek.
"Capture[s] the magic musicals were meant for." – Wall Street Journal.
"[A] show with a wild heart and a fresh eye." – N.Y. Newsday.
