No Longer A Maniac

fter recording six albums
with 10,000 Maniacs, Natal-
ie Merchant set out to launch
a solo career with the release
of her first album, Tigerlily.
Ms. Merchant, who left 10,000 Maniacs

eter marries Rita only six
weeks after he meets her.
When a mysterious old man
appears at their wedding,
both newlyweds think he is
the other's relative.
So when the old man asks Rita
for a kiss, she politely obliges.
Then, things get weird. Rita's
behavior changes dramatically,
and Peter realizes the old man is

now Rita and Rita is the old man
(remember, it's a play).
What follows is a comic scene of
mistaken identity where Peter and
the old man, who is Rita, try to
trap Rita, who is the old man, into
switching back.
Prelude to a Kiss runs through
Nov. 30 at the Hilberry Theatre.

Is a kiss
just a kiss?
The Hilberry
Prelude To A
Kiss answers
the question.
