Theater for the New City presents the world premiere production of 'Julian and Romero', Written and Directed by Alex Perez. (De La Guarda, Ultimate Drag Off, Oz). "J&R" will play a limited engagement at Theater for the New City from September 3-8th, 2013. Get a first look at rehearsals below!

Julian and Romero is A fabled story of two young Cuban men in the 1960's, one communist soldier under Castro's revolution, and one closeted gay young man- who were both best friends growing up but are now at odds with each other's beliefs, politically/religiously and culturally. The story is told in scenes, dance and monologues within the play at a UMAP prison camp with subplots and relationship issues that arise between the prisoner and the soldier. It is an agonizing look at a rich cultural history, filled with music of Cuba's yesteryear, American dreams and the will to survive against all odds.

"The play resonates deeply with everything that's going on right now in Russia and other countries concerning human rights issues," states actor Gonzalo Trigueros.

Julian and Romero plays the following schedule:

Tuesday Sept 3 9:00 pm
Wednesday Sep 4 6:30 pm
Thursday Sep 5 9:00 pm
Saturday Sep 7 5:00 pm
Sunday Sep 8 8:00 pm
