Once you’ve accepted the gimmick in this bittersweet fantasy about an old man (Frasier‘s John Mahoney) and a young bride (Law & Order‘s Annie Parisse) swapping body and soul after a magical kiss, the darker musings on the nature of true love resonate deeply. Mahoney and Parisse deftly avoid mimicry while inhabiting each other’s characters, and Alan Tudyk charms as a bewildered groom seeking to break the spell. But even stranger than the premise of Prelude to a Kiss is how Mahoney and Tudyk possess more romantic chemistry than practically any couple on stage this season.
