Happy Holidays from Dry Cold!
See below for the excerpt from the Winnipeg Free Press article Reflecting on a Decade of Manitoba Theatre

Rochelle Kives and Reid McTavish, Kiss of the Spider Woman (2019)

Gary Barringer

Reid McTavish in Kiss of the Spider Woman.


Musical theatre isn’t typically one of my favourite things, so I had absolutely no idea what I was walking into with Dry Cold Production’s 2019 offering of Kiss of the Spider Woman, directed by Christopher Brauer.  As it turns out, I was walking into a startlingly contemporary and thoroughly riveting musical written by none other than the classic pairing of John Kander and Fred Ebb, who brought us both Chicago and Cabaret, two musicals I actually love.  And thanks to the irresistible and spellbinding performances by Reid McTavish as Molina and Rochelle Kives as Aurora, by the end of this show, I had abandoned my anti-musical theatre stance entirely.
