Stage Kiss

A comedy

Wasatch Theatre invites you to join us for a Stage Kiss Art imitates Life. Life imitates Art. 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. This ode to live theater (and Utah premiere) is written by acclaimed playwright Sarah Ruhl and is directed by Mark Fossen. “One thing that’s been apparent throughout all of Sarah Ruhl’s plays,” says Fossen, “is her deep love, trust and admiration when it comes to her theatrical collaborators...She challenges them with staging the unstageable and does so knowing that they can work a magic far beyond what she can practically imagine.” Fossen also says, “Stage Kiss is her love letter to the theatre, her paean to all theatre artists—especially actors. The metafictional layers of the show never get in the way of the heartfelt respect she shows, and she shows it by stripping away the magic of theatre … only to find more magic.” Stage Kiss opens with a pre-show event and post show Fundraising Gala on Saturday, April 30 2016 and runs Thursdays through Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. at the Rose Wagner Studio Theatre (138 West 300 South) until Saturday, May 14, 2016. Saturday matinees are May 7 and 14 at 2:00 p.m. with a special Mother’s Day matinee on Sunday, May 8 at 2:00 p.m. Tickets for all performances are $20.00 (with the exception of those for the opening night gala, which are $30.00) and are available at the Rose Wagner box office located at 138 W. 300 S. Salt Lake City, or online at or by calling 801-355-2787. Visit for more information.
