I Wanna Fuck Like Romeo And Juliet
October 20-November 5, 2022
59E59 Theater; NYC
Directed by Jesse Jou
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 spirit back up, and it involves reigniting the flame between two humans, Alejandro and Benny.
Moving from the Heavens to Hackensack, I WANNA F*CK LIKE ROMEO AND JULIET is a love story of epic proportions filled with Gods and mortals, realism and fantasy, and captures the many flavors of Queer love.
