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.
