Kiss of the Spider Woman

Lyric Stage Company of Boston
140 Clarendon Street Boston

Fantasy and reality become tangled in a dark web in this smash musical by John Kander and Fred Ebb, the songwriting team that penned Chicago and Cabaret. 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 more complicated, so too do Molina's over-the-top fantasies, which begin encroaching upon -- and threatening to overtake -- his real life. Penned by four-time Tony Award-winning playwright Terrence McNally, this powerful story comes to life at the Lyric Stage Company in Boston.
