Jose Joaquin Perez stars in DRAWN AND QUARTERED

From the press release:

Drawn and Quartered
A New Play by Maggie Bofill, Directed by Lou Moreno
June 1 – June 26th ONLY

INTAR (Lou Moreno, Artistic Director/John McCormack, Executive Director) will present Drawn and Quartered, a new play by Maggie Bofill, directed by Lou Moreno, beginning performances Off-Broadway Wednesday June 1st, and continuing through June 26th only, at INTAR’s theater space (500 West 52nd Street, at Tenth Avenue, on the 4th Floor). Opening Night is set for Tuesday June 7th at 8pm. The play runs 75 minutes and contains nudity and is for mature audiences only. Featured in Drawn and Quartered are Jose Joaquin Perez and Liza Ramirez.  Drawn and Quartered was developed as part of INTAR’s New Works Lab.

Drawn and Quartered is about the explosive reunion of a couple: Ana and Michael were together for four years – until the night of the big fight, when Michael left without coming back to get his stuff. After no contact for six months, Ana decides to sell the studio apartment they once shared, and on hearing Michael’s down and out, hires him to do it. She leaves him instructions and upon her return two days later, finds he’s thrown much more than paint on those banged up walls. What ensues is the volcanic grapple of two people – angry, impassioned, lacerated, and still very much in… something. A story about torture, pain, paint, and love, all to the beat of a live conga.


  1. Nudity rating = 0. Jose Joaqin Perez is a hottie. He was shirtless during the latter part of the short 1 hour play. You could see his part of his butt when he bends over. Inspite of the nudity warning there was no nudity at all. Maybe there would be when they finally open. I watched it last Sunday still on previews.

    1. I saw this last week and agree with Lucy. There was no nudity. The play was only around 45 minutes long and felt unfinished. I am new to off Broadway theater going. Ms Malou suggests that there may be nudity when the play opens, Perhaps they will add the twenty minutes missing (the play was advertised as being 70 minutes long).Is this true? Is it common to show what amounts to only two thirds of the play in previews?
