Young Republicans Theatre Co. is proud to present How You Kiss Me Is Not How I
Like To Be Kissed as part of the 19th annual New York International Fringe
Festival FringeNYC.
Kiss her, poorly. Take him home anyway. Set boundaries, share secrets.
Meet her dad, blow it. Fall in love casually, strangely, effortlessly. Negotiate
monogamy. Survive IKEA. Make a life together. Fall apart as easily as you
came together. Now what? A romantic comedy for people who dont trust
romantic comedies, How You Kiss Me Is Not How I Like To Be Kissed asks
whether there can ever be more than one kind of love story. 50 mins
Finalist, John Cauble Award, Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival
Semi-Finalist, Princess Grace Award 2015
How You Kiss Me features actor Olivia Lemmon, a recent graduate of Carnegie
Mellon School of Dramas BFA acting program; actor Jacob Brandt, a
writer/performer whose credits include Ars Nova, the Huntington Theatre Co.,
and Company One; choreographer Mariel Pettee, a performer/physicist whose
work investigates the intersection of art and science; and composer Gus
Ruchman, whose music has been performed by Yo-Yo Mas Silk Road Project, the
Joyful Noise Chorus, and the Chiara String Quartet.
Playwright/director Dan Giless plays have most recently been performed or
developed at the Great Plains Theatre Conference, Williamstown Theatre Festival,

and the Kennedy Center. This year, Dans work was featured on The Cutting Ball
Theatres Risky Playwrights list and in American Theatre Magazines article 14
Theatrical Plans to Change the World. MFA, Carnegie Mellon School of Drama.
This is the New York City debut of the Young Republicans, a spry, gawky, curious
performance group with a utopian outlook and a lamentable moniker created by
recent graduates of Harvard College and Carnegie Mellon School of Drama.
