Sarah Ruhl returns to Playwrights Horizons with the new romantic comedy Stage Kiss. The show stars Nurse Jackie's Dominic Fumusa and Tony nominee Jessica Hecht as two actors whose onstage romance bleeds into their offstage personal lives.
Art imitates Life. Life imitates Art. When two actors (Hecht and Fumusa) 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. Sarah Ruhl’s singular voice returns to Playwrights Horizons with Stage Kiss, a charming tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss—or when actors share a real one.
The cast features Jessica Hecht, Dominic Fumusa, Todd Almond, Clea Alsip, Michael Cyril Creighton, Emma Galvin, Daniel Jenkins and Patrick Kerr.
