Sarah Ruhl's new play stars Jessica Hecht and Dominic Fumusa as actors whose romantic flame is rekindled when they're cast in a forgotten melodrama.
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Art imitates Life. Life imitates Art. When two actors with a history are thrown together as romantic leads in a forgotten 1930s melodrama, they quickly lose touch with reality as the story onstage follows them offstage. Sarah Ruhl's singular voice returns to Playwrights Horizons with Stage Kiss, a charming tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss—or when actors share a real one.
