About This Production

One of the first things that struck me about this script the opportunity to see the lives of the Romantics from a new perspective. We're able to see these kids being just that - kids - with way too much privilege, having way too much sex, and not holding on to a whole lot of sense.

We decided to look at these famous artists through a contemporary, feminine lens, drawing inspiration from the ennui and intrigue of the oh-it's-just-so-bad-that-it's-fantastic TV series, Gossip Girl.
