When good actors go bad …

“Art imitates Life. Life imitates Art. When two actors with a history are thrown together as romantic leads in a forgotten 1930’s melodrama, they quickly lose touch with reality as the story onstage follows them offstage. Stage Kiss captures Sarah Ruhl’s singular voice. It is a charming tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss – or when actors share a real one. The plays-within-the-play are where the craziness really begins, and reality and stage fantasy become one. This delightful romantic comedy looks at love from all angles, leading to a satisfying surprise ending.

Included in New York Magazine’s “The 9 Best Plays (and one best musical) of 2014” and “The New Yorker’s Best Theatre of the Year, 2011”.
