Photo Flash: The Comrades' present PRELUDE TO A KISS

The Comrades are pleased to open their Winter 2017 production, PRELUDE TO A KISS by Craig Lucas. This classic romantic comedy will be directed by Artistic Director Derek Bertelsen and will play the Greenhouse Theater Center (2257 N Lincoln Ave, Chicago) from January 12 through February 4, 2017.

In this modern day fairy tale, an uninvited guest turns a perfect wedding into a white-knuckled rollercoaster ride of doubt and regret. When an elderly "wedding crasher" kisses the bride, their souls exchange, leaving the brave but bewildered groom to reverse the curse armed only with the power of love. When it first premiered, Prelude To A Kiss received a Tony Award nomination for Best Play and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1991.

The cast for PRELUDE TO A KISS includes Comrades company members David Coupe (Peter), Mike Newquist (Taylor) and Cydney Moody (Leah). Other cast members include Bethany Hart (Rita), Edmund McGuire (Old Man), James Spangler (Dr. Boyle), Carol Ludwick (Mrs. Boyle), Tom Lally (Uncle Fred), Anne Wrider (Aunt Dorothy), Raymond Jacquet (Tom), Alex Nolen (Ensemble) and Jazzma Pryor (Ensemble).

The Assistant Director is David Lew Cooper and the Stage Manager is Melanie Kulas. The creative team includes Uriel Gomez (Costume Designer), Michael Lewis (Scenic Designer), Nicholas Coso (Lighting Designer), Becca Venable (Sound Designer), Asha McAllister (Make-Up/Hair Designer) and Michael J. Sanow (Technical Director).
