PISCATAWAY – Circle Players will present “Prelude to a Kiss,” a love story written by Craig Lucas. After receiving rave reviews off-Broadway, the original production moved to Broadway in May 1990. It closed in 1991, received a Tony Award nomination as Best Play, and was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
