A kiss transforms the lives of a pair of newlyweds in the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-nominated comedy Prelude to a Kiss. In this modern day fairy tale, an uninvited guest turns a perfect wedding into a white-knuckled roller coaster ride of doubt and regret. When an 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. When it first premiered, Craig Lucas' play received a Tony Award nomination for Best Play and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 1991. Get swept away by this magical tale at Chicago's Greenhouse Theater Center.

"...The swift pacing and the constant moving of the stage boxes and the too strong pushing of the comic elements quickly became irritating. The subtle reference to the AIDS crisis got lost since it is now 2017 so the fantasy here comes off as dated and strange. This uneven production tried too hard to eek humor. The material is dated and the performances are spotty. Iíd pass on this one."

"...In a much-welcome production of a play that deals with heartbreak, love and tenderness, thereís far too much pizzazz and pep here. Itís as if this beautiful play, set in 1990, is simply another loud TV sitcom thatís been transferred to the stage to be presented live for theatre audiences. It misses the mark. Welcome to TV Land."
