Will Onstage Love Translate to the Real World? Catch Stage Kiss to Find Out

Does art imitate life, or is it the other way around? What emotions lurk behind a steamy on-stage kiss? Find out when you catch the Fort Worth premiere of Stage Kiss at the Circle Theatre on September 13th.

When two actors 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. Stage Kiss captures Sarah Ruhl’s singular voice with a funny and charming tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss—or when actors share a real one.

"Suffused with warmth and humor. Sarah Ruhl frothily whips together romantic comedy and backstage farce in this lively comedy about a pair of actors...who find life and art mixing together when they rekindle an old romance during rehearsals for a play." — New York Times

"There's not one but two plays-within-a-play in Sarah Ruhl's "Stage Kiss," a highly meta-theatrical, fundamentally enjoyable, slightly slight, not-so-romantic comedy pondering the complexity of onstage osculation." – Variety
