BWW Review: Welk Resort's KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN Revival Is a KnockoutBWW Review: Welk Resort's KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN Revival Is a Knockout
by Don Grigware - Sep 18, 2017

Frequently described as a cross between steel and gossamer, Kander and Ebb's musical of Manuel Puig's mind-boggling novel Kiss of the Spider Woman is nothing short of breathtaking when properly produced. Dealing with reality versus illusion (steel, for prison bars and gossamer, the feminine side of Molina's mind), the play adapts perfectly to musical form, where Molina (Jeffrey Scott Parsons) and his troupe play out Aurora's (Natalie Nucci) screen life through song and dance. In fact, I've always found the musical more intriguing than Hector Babenco's 1985 film also because of the omnipresent operatic themes of romance, love, passion, violence and betrayal. (more...)
