Marisa Tomei and Oscar Isaac star in this reading of MCC's seminal play about love at all costs.
In a staged reading of this 1987 classic, Oscar Isaac, Marisa Tomei, and Patrick Breen remind us of the lengths to which we are willing to go to prove our love in unconscionable times.
In a story that seems more familiar now than ever, Beirut follows the story of Torch (played by Oscar Isaac) who has tested positive for a mysterious disease and has to be quarantined in his Lower East Side apartment. His girlfriend, Blue (played by Marisa Tomei), has refused to let him be alone even though she could be punished by death. This story is a raw and risqué look into the depths of our love for one another no matter what the cost may be.
