Beirut is a fiery show… an intriguing watch’ ‘
Miro Magazine 


Beirut is exploding in Park90 with captivating performances and an air that sizzles with tension. This modern day, dark Romeo and Juliet tale follows the story of two lovers who are torn apart by their desperate need to be together. One question remains; will they risk death for love?

Torch has been quarantined in a dark, squalid room on the Lower East Side of New York City, which the locals refer to as “Beirut”, after testing positive for a nameless disease. Torch passes the time alone, forbidden from contact with the outside world.

His girlfriend, Blue, makes the dangerous journey across the quarantine line to be with him. Torch tries to keep her at arm’s length and they argue lovingly, jokingly, fearfully, bravely and desperately about sex and death. All the while, Torch pleads with Blue to leave before his resistance fails…

Robin Lefevre has previously won the New York Drama Desk Award for Best Director and is a Tony Award nominee.

BEIRUT at @ParkTheatre is such an intense experience. So physical, aggressive and political – it holds nothing back. 100% would recommend
