Rita and Peter's whirlwind romance takes a startling turn in Prelude to a Kiss, the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-nominated comedy from Craig Lucas. After a mysterious elderly man surprises Rita with a congratulatory kiss at her storybook wedding, Peter slowly realizes, over the course of their honeymoon, that the woman by his side is not his wife. It appears that the wedding kiss must have caused Rita's soul and that of the old, sick man to change bodies. This thrusts the newlyweds into a mystical journey as they attempt to find the true strength of their love, beyond the surface connections that first drew them to one another. Prelude to a Kiss was a Broadway hit and a feature film starring Alec Baldwin and Meg Ryan. Watch the magical tale unfold at the Falcon Theatre in Newport.
