MAC’s Eastbound Theatre announces the opening show of its 25th season! Prelude to A Kiss, by Craig Lucas, directed by Ann Baker.

Prelude to a Kiss is a romantic comedy about Peter and Rita. It is Peter and Rita’s wedding day and their love and joy are evident to everyone. But Rita’s sweet gesture of giving a kiss to an elderly stranger turns their world upside down when her soul is exchanged with his. 

Peter is at first confused by Rita’s dramatic personality change, but once he realizes what has happened he searches frantically for the old man and to find a way to switch back their souls.

Yet, even as he struggles with this overwhelming, and increasingly alarming situation, Peter comes to realize that his love for Rita truly transcends any physical form.

Friday and Saturday Performances at 8 pm.  Cabaret Seating and BYOEEE - Bring Your Own Everything Except the Entertainment. Concessions available in our Speakeasy Lounge as well.
