London Spider Woman Revival Lays Web Tonight

London Spider Woman Revival Lays Web Tonight

This evening, a new revival of Kiss Of The Spider Woman will open at London's distinguished Donmar Warehouse.

Lest there be any confusion, this is a revival of the original play by the late Argentine novelist Manuel Puig, which was transformed into an Academy Award-winning film in 1985 (William Hurt took home the Best Actor Oscar) and a subsequent Tony Award-winning Best Musical in 1993 by John Kander, Fred Ebb and Terrence McNally.

The Charlotte Westenra-helmed prison drama with a fresh translation by Allan Baker stars Rupert Evans and Will Keen.

Initial reports from my favorite London theatre bloggers, the West End Whingers, aren't exactly promising. But then my fave UK social commentary blogger, City Slicker, says it's a must-see. We'll see with whom the critics agree.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
