Kansas City's Unicorn Theatre will extend their production of David Hare's The Judas Kiss through May 15. The production, which opened April 23, was originally slated to run through May 9. One could attribute interest in the show to Hare's strong presence on Broadway this season (three shows: Via Dolorosa, The Blue Room and Amy's View).

Kansas City's Unicorn Theatre will extend their production of David Hare's The Judas Kiss through May 15. The production, which opened April 23, was originally slated to run through May 9. One could attribute interest in the show to Hare's strong presence on Broadway this season (three shows: Via Dolorosa, The Blue Room and Amy's View).

Judas Kiss had switched slots in the Unicorn schedule with David Barr's Every Time I Feel the Spirit, the National Playwright Award selection. The latter piece, the story of Marian Anderson, internationally acclaimed contralto who was the first African American to appear at the Metropolitan Opera, will now run from June 4-27.

Coterie Theatre's producing artistic director Jeff Church (Unicorn's Love! Valour! Compassion!) directs Judas Kiss, about Irish playwright Oscar Wilde's doomed homosexual relationship with Lord Alfred Douglas. The play originally opened with Liam Neeson at London's Playhouse Theatre March 12, 1998. It quickly transferred to Broadway's Broadhurst Theatre (also starring Neeson), where it ran April 23-Aug. 2, 1998. Other Hare plays include Via Dolorosa, Amy's View and The Blue Room.

Robert Gibby Brand stars as Wilde with Zach Christman as Bosie. Also in the cast are Tony Guest (Robert Ross), Tyler Dustin (Arthur Wellesley), Phoebe Cane (Janie Miller), Micahel Rapport (Sandy Moffat) and Eric Wetz (Galileo Masconi).

Tickets ($17.50 - $20) are available by calling the box office at (816) 531 PLAY ext. 10. The Unicorn Theatre is located at 3828 Main Street. -- By Christine Ehren and Sean McGrath
