Tony is admitted to a rehabilitation center after a serious skiing accident. Dependent on the medical staff and pain relievers, she takes time to look back on a turbulent relationship that she experienced with Georgio. Why did they love each other? Who is this man that she loved so deeply? How did she allow herself to submit to this suffocating and destructive passion? For Tony, a difficult process of healing is in front of her, physical work which may finally set her free. (Rotten Tomatoes)

The Hipp continues our wonderful partnership with the UF School of Theatre + Dance on another outstanding production: Sarah Ruhl’s Stage Kiss. Previous Hipp/UF collaborations (Avenue Q, Clybourne Park, and Peter and the Starcatcher) have been audience favorites, and we can’t wait to share this New York Times CRITICS PICK with you. Stage Kiss is a charming and clever tale about what happens when lovers share a stage kiss – or when actors share a real one. This romantic comedy blends over-the-top farce with emotional experiences that will bring laughter, fantasy and heart to anyone who has ever been in love…or in a play.

This production contains adult language and situations.

 

“Suffused with warmth and humor” — New York Times

“Romantic comedy and backstage farce”— New York Times

“Stage Kiss is part parody, part inside-baseball valentine to theater, part falling-down silly physical comedy about love.” – Newsday

“A superb new romantic.”

“It’s moving, smart, and flat-out hilarious.” 

 

8 Shows a Week:  Tuesdays-Thursdays at 7pm | Fridays at 8pm | Saturdays at 5 & 8:30pm | Sundays at 2 & 7pm

Warsaw, December 1945: the second World War is finally over and French Red Cross doctor Mathilde (Lou de Laage) is treating the last of the French survivors of the German camps. When a panicked Benedictine nun appears at the clinic begging Mathilde to follow her back to the convent, what she finds there is shocking: a holy sister about to give birth and several more in advanced stages of pregnancy. A non-believer, Mathilde enters the sisters’ fiercely private world, dictated by the rituals of their order and the strict Rev. Mother (Agata Kulesza, Ida). Fearing the shame of exposure, the hostility of the occupying Soviet troops and local Polish communists and while facing an unprecedented crisis of faith, the nuns increasingly turn to Mathilde as their beliefs and traditions clash with harsh realities.

“Leaves us with a fresh understanding of our capacity to respond to suffering with good or evil, and to find new definitions of grace and vocation.” – Justin Chang, Variety

 
“A near perfect film with restrained, yet powerful, performances, direction that allows the narrative to unfold in truly revelatory ways, surprising humor, and cinematography that begs translation into still photography.” – J. Ryan Parker, Patheos.com

“A moving drama about the struggle to keep one’s faith in the most difficult of situations…a compelling deconstruction of how to cope and rebuild.” – Jordan Raup, The Film Stage

After stumbling upon a bizarre “competitive endurance tickling” video online, wherein young men are paid to be tied up and tickled, reporter David Farrier reaches out to request a story from the company. But the reply he receives is shocking—the sender mocks Farrier’s sexual orientation and threatens extreme legal action should he dig any deeper. So, like any good journalist confronted by a bully, he does just the opposite: he travels to the hidden tickling facilities in Los Angeles and uncovers a vast empire, known for harassing and harming the lives of those who protest their involvement in these films. The more he investigates, the stranger it gets, discovering secret identities and criminal activity. [Magnolia Pictures]

“It’s a fascinating look not only at this particular character and his wide reach, but at the evolution of the Internet, its utopian possibilities for connection, and the dark side of its power to expose and harm individuals within the system.”
-Katie Walsh, The Playlist

 
“An alarming cautionary tale about how easy it is in the Internet age to ruin people’s lives while hiding behind a cloak of anonymity, the pic boasts a humorously titillating entry hook that soon gives way to engrossing conspiracy-thriller-like content.”
-Dennis Harvey, Variety
