About this show

Adapted from Manuel Puig's acclaimed novel prior to its incarnations as a powerful film and Broadway hit musical, the original stage play remains a searing drama about two Argentinean men -- a gay window dresser and a socialist rebel -- forced to share a claustrophobic jail cell. Imprisoned by an oppressive government for their beliefs and their lifestyle, each man comes to find solace in the other's company, as the line between the erotic and the political begins to blur. Intimate, intense, tender and startling, Kiss of the Spider Woman reveals an unlikely love story in the most inhuman and grueling of circumstances. Seth Rozin directs.
