About:

Held within a special location buried deep in the CBD. Theatre Lab NOLA provides you an incredibly raw performance in a remarkably raw space. You'll be transcended into the world that is Beirut within the first minute of stepping into this venue. TLNOLA founders Christopher Ramage (starred) and Fred Nuccio (directed) produced Beirut over 5 years ago and will be bringing the same emotional roller coaster to light in such a different fashion that you can't help but be captivated by this experience.

Starring Jason Piglia (Torch), Isabel Groedel (Blue), and directed by Fred Nuccio, this grasping show is set in an apocalyptic future where a young man named Torch has been quarantined to a dark, squalid room on the Lower East Side of New York City, after testing positive for a nameless, sexually transmitted disease. His uninfected girlfriend, Blue, sneaks into this area to be with him. Torch tries to keep her at room’s length and for the next hour, 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 and he infects her. She chooses the possibility of infection: “I can live without sex and feel dead or risk death and feel alive."
