Prelude to a Kiss

Prelude to a Kiss

Artwork by Matt Castigliego

By Craig Lucas

In this modern day fairy tale, an uninvited guest turns a perfect wedding into a white-knuckled rollercoaster ride of doubt and regret. For when this elderly “wedding crasher” kisses the bride, their souls exchange, leaving the brave but bewildered groom to reverse the curse armed only with the power of love.

“A beautifully staged, sentimental two-hour respite from anything trying or stressful in the world.” -Projo
“A romance for all ages.” -MotifRI
“Well acted and well staged. Go see it.” -BroadwayworldRI
