Stage Kiss

A superb romantic comedy

Stage Kiss

April 24 to May 10, 2020

Hilberry Theatre
by Sarah Ruhl

Art imitates Life. Life imitates Art. Either way, the result is hilarious.

When two actors with a history are thrown together as romantic leads in a forgotten 1930s melodrama, they quickly lose touch with reality as the story onstage follows them offstage. Stage Kiss, by renowned playwright Sarah Ruhl, is a charming tale about what happens when characters share a stage kiss — or when actors share a real one.

“A gift and a rarity: a superb new romantic comedy that’s moving, smart and flat-out hilarious… You will have difficulty breathing. Stage Kiss is that funny.” — Jesse Green, New York Magazine
