Theater Review: Kiss of the Spider Woman
Signature Theatre launches its Kander & Ebb Celebration with an inspired and thought-provoking production of this musical.
The setting, according to the program, is “a prison in Latin America sometime in the recent past.” A repressive regime has imprisoned Molina, a très gay window dresser obsessed with a movie actress named Aurora, and Valentin, a muy macho Marxist who reluctantly admits that his girlfriend is a member in good standing of the bourgeoisie—she even drives a Mercedes. As cellmates, they have much to learn about each other and about a love that requires patience and sacrifice.
