The Collective Face Theatre Ensemble presents
KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN
The Tony Award-winning musical
With music by John Kander, lyrics by Fred Ebb and book by Terrence McNally, Kiss of the Spider Woman tells the story of Valentin, an Argentine revolutionary, sharing a prison cell with Molina, a gay man jailed on a morals charge who escapes from the terrifying reality of prison life into fantasies featuring Aurora, a mysterious 1940s movie star. The original production won 1993 Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Book and Best Score, as well as Best Actress (Chita Rivera), Best Actor (Brent Carver) and Best Featured Actor (Anthony Crivello).
