Winner of seven Tony Awards, this rarely-seen dazzling 1993 musical by Kander and Ebb (writers of Cabaret and Chicago) tells the story of Molina, an imprisoned Latin American gay man and his cell mate Valentin, a Marxist revolutionary. To emotionally survive prison brutality, Molina spins fantasies of a movie queen, the Spider Woman Aurora.The fantasies come to life through lavish dance numbers and aerial feats performed on silks. Inspired by Aurora and his unselfish love for Valentin, Molina arrives at his own heroic definition of masculinity. It captures the magic musicals were meant for -Wall Street Journal.
