The Tony Award-winning musical Kiss of the Spider Woman opens at the Theatre UCF Main Stage on October 16 and runs through October 26. Scroll down for a first look at the cast!

The music for Kiss of the Spider Woman was written by John Kander and Fred Ebb, the composer/lyricist team who also scored Cabaret, Chicago, and Curtains, and the script is by Ragtime playwright Terrance McNally. It is based on a novel by Argentinian writer Manuel Puig.

The story centers around the relationship between two prisoners, Molina and Valentin, in a Latin American jail. Molina is a homosexual who dreams of being a woman, and Valentin is a political revolutionary. Molina tells stories about Aurora, a legendary actress as a means of escaping the brutal realities of life in prison.

Kiss of the Spider Woman won the Tony Awards for Best Musical, Best Book, and Best Score when it debuted on Broadway.
