Does art imitate life? Or does life imitate art? From Pulitzer finalist and Tony Award nominee Sarah Ruhl (Dead Man's Cell Phone, In the Next Room (or the Vibrator Play)) is this wickedly clever and charming tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss - or when actors share a real one. 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. The New York Times hailed Ruhl's new play a "daffy comedy about the emotional pitfalls of the acting life." The New York Post said it "aims for big laughs and hits its target." Vulture raved "Stage Kiss itself is a gift and a rarity: a superb new romantic comedy that does justice to both sides of the genre equation. It's moving, smart, and flat-out hilarious." Make a date night for one of the hottest new plays to hit the stage.

But you've never seen it here and there's no better time than the present to experience this all-American gem.
Pisces water sign, Arizona native raised in the mountains. Elevated 7,200 feet above the Phoenix valley, Zella was nestled into a log cabin with an acoustic guitar in a town surrounded by the Sitgreaves National Forest and Apache reservation. Immersed in music at a young age, her family owning the only coffee house in town with life music, Z was apart of a very small artist community that supported her natural desire to write music. Now residing in Los Angeles, Zella Day incorporates her simplistic roots and blends them with the eclectic sounds of the West Coast.
