We've made the difficult decision to postpone our final show of the 2019-2020 season, and last year's New Light New Voices winning play: I Wanna F*ck Like Romeo & Juliet by Andrew Rincón with direction by Jesse Jou due to COVID-19. We are 100% committed to sharing this beautiful story with the NYC community and are actively looking to reschedule the production in our 2020-2021 season.

Snow in July, comets falling from the sky, the world is thrown into chaos as Cupid rips off her wings and gives up on Love. But her old flame Saint Valentine has a plan to bring her spirits back up; and it involves the relationship between two men, Alejandro and Benny. Moving from outer space to Hackensack NJ, I Wanna Fuck like Romeo and Juliet is a Queer Love story of epic proportions that investigates God and mortals, realism and fantasy and the shame and joy within Queer love of Color.
