KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN to Play Welk Resort Theatre
Welk Resort Theatre, located in Escondido at the historic Welk Resort, announces the cast of KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN, by John Kander and Fred Ebb with book by Terrence McNally. The production is led by award winning director and choreographer, Ray Limon.
KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN revamps a harrowing tale of persecution into a dazzling spectacle that juxtaposes gritty realities with liberating fantasies. Cell mates in a Latin American prison, Valentin is a tough revolutionary undergoing torture and Molina is an unabashed homosexual serving eight years for deviant behavior. Molina shares his fantasies about an actress, Aurora with Valentin. One of her roles is a Spider Woman who kills with a kiss. (PG-13 - Recommended for 17+, younger at parents discretion)
Director/Choreographer Ray Limon shared "I have always wanted to direct KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN. The piece is a powerful look at very different people coming together in difficult time and finding common ground. A theme that remains incredibly relevant and important to explore. I'm thrilled with the talented group of performers with whom I get to tell this incredible story."
