News: Queer Love Story "Stop Kiss" to Play May 18th-21st at Theater for the New City
From May 18th through May 21st, Theater for the New City Executive Director Crystal Field will present Stop Kiss, by Diana Son, a powerful and heart-wrenching love story that will take you on a journey of laughter, tears, and, ultimately, hope. This non-linear narrative follows the story of Sara and Callie, two women who meet in New York City and form an unlikely bond that quickly blossoms into a beautiful romance. But their happiness is soon shattered by a violent hate crime. With sharp, witty dialogue and deeply moving moments, Stop Kiss explores themes of love, identity, and the devastating impact of intolerance.
This queer love story promises to tug at your heartstrings and leave you with a renewed sense of the power of love in the face of adversity. The production, directed by Suzanne DiDonna and performed by Luísa Galatti, Pamela Torres, Christina Loper, Sam McCarthy, Antoni Danieluk, and Mamadou Jalloh, aims to captivate and inspire audiences of all backgrounds.
When: May 18th, 19th & 20th at 8pm. May 21st at 3pm.
