PORTLAND – Good Theater will stage the award-winning play “Prelude To A Kiss,” by Craig Lucas, Feb. 14 to March 9. The romantic comedy is about a quirky young couple who meet and fall in love. On their wedding day, a mysterious stranger shows up and as he kisses the bride, everyone’s world changes.

The play originally premiered at the South Coast Repertory in 1988. It opened off-Broadway in 1990, where it received rave reviews and transferred to Broadway, playing the Helen Hayes Theatre and starring Timothy Hutton, Mary Louise Parker and Barnard Hughes.

The Broadway production ran for 440 performances, received a Tony Award nomination as Best Play and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Last season, the Roundabout Theatre Company presented a Broadway revival starring John Mahoney.

“Prelude To A Kiss” will have four performances each week with shows at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, tickets $17; at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, tickets $22; and at 2 p.m. Sunday, tickets $22. There will be an addition performance at 3 p.m. Saturday, March 8 ($17). There is a $3 discount for students and senior citizens for shows with the exception of Thursday evening and the Saturday matinee. For tickets or more information, call the box office at 885-5883.
