MAC's Eastbound Theatre Announces The Opening Show Of Its 25th Season
Craig Lucas is an award winning playwright, screenwriter, director and actor, known best for his pieces about love and relationships. His accolades include three Tony Award nominations for An American in Paris, Light in the Piazza, and Prelude to a Kiss, as well as a Pulitzer Prize nomination for Prelude to a Kiss.
This is a romantic comedy about Peter and Rita. It's their wedding day and their love and joy are evident to everyone. But Rita's sweet gesture of giving a kiss to an elderly stranger turns their world upside down when her soul is exchanged with his. Peter is at first confused by Rita's dramatic personality change, but once he realizes what has happened he searches frantically for the old man and to find a way to restore his wife to her original body. Yet even as he struggles with this overwhelming and increasingly alarming situation, he comes to realize that his love for Rita truly transcends any physical form.
As director Ann Baker explains "I have always been a sucker for a good romantic comedy, and this is a sweet show with an interesting twist. It's a great lesson about learning to love someone no matter their physical appearance or the unexpected changes life brings."
