About the play
Valentin, a Marxist revolutionary, and Molina, a gay window dresser, develop an uneasy friendship rooted in surviving life in a Latin American prison. As the bond between the two men deepens, Molina escapes to a fantasy world of the movies he loved as a child and he conjures a beautiful and beguiling screen enchantress. The line between reality and fantasy begins to blur -- and the danger mounts -- in this mesmerizing classic from the songwriting team of Chicago and Cabaret and the four-time Tony Award winning author of Love! Valor! Compassion!
