“Kiss of the Spider Woman”

Performs Apr 21-May 7
At the Sorenson Unity Center

Music by John Kander and Fred Ebb, Book by Terrence McNally
Directed by Johnny Hebda
Music Direction by Anne Puzey
Choreography by Ashley Gardner Carlson

Starring: Erin Royall Carlson as the Spider Woman, Kenneth Wayne as Molina and Juan Pereira as Valentin

This Tony-winning best musical is the darkest of Kander & Ebb’s works. Based on the Manuel Puig novel “El Beso de la Murer Ariana”, it depicts the daily conversations between two cellmates in an Argentine prison, Molina and Valentín, and the intimate bond they form in the process. This surprisingly fresh story explores such themes as escapism through fantasy, effimenophobia, betrayal and manipulation, and ultimately love and survival. With such songs as “The Kiss of the Spider Woman”, “The Day After That”, and “Gimme Love”, audiences are in for a treat in this rarely performed musical.
