Kiss of the Spider Woman
SecondStory Repertory is holding a new round of auditions for our March 2014 production of Kiss of the Spider Woman. Directed by Billie Wildrick with music direction by Brandon Peck and choreography by Matthew Lawrence.
The story of two cell mates in a Latin American prison -- Valentin, a Marxist revolutionary, and Molina, a gay window dresser. As the friendship between the two men deepens, Molina escapes to a fantasy world of the movies he loved as a child, conjuring a beautiful and beguiling screen enchantress named Aurora to pass the time. The lines between reality and fantasy begin to blur -- and the danger mounts -- in this mesmerizing classic from the songwriting team that created Chicago and Cabaret and the four-time Tony Award-winning author of Love! Valor! Compassion! Winner! Multiple Tony® Awards including Best Musical!
The show runs March 27 April 13, 2014. Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, with additional matinees on April 12 and April 13 at 2pm. Rehearsal schedule is Sunday-Thursday 7pm-10pm and Saturdays 12 pm-4 pm. Rehearsals begin February 24, 2014.
