The pair teamed up to perform a reading of Alan Browne’s Beiruit, a one-act play Tomei first took on in MCC’s 1987 One-Act Play Festival. This was part of MCC’s Virtual Events series, where audiences could purchase tickets to watch a live performance online. Naturally, social distancing must be maintained, so Isaac and Tomei performed from their respective homes, interacting via video call.
One of my favorite theaters in NYC, @MCCTheater, is doing a very powerful reading of Beirut with @MarisaTomei + Oscar Isaac tonight.— Michael Skolnik (@MichaelSkolnik) April 29, 2020
The play written in the 80's is about two people trying to survive a pandemic in a futuristic United States. Damn, how relevant it is today. pic.twitter.com/gJBLgssKy2
The stars were socially distanced and taking on a timely drama, yet their sexual chemistry was so explosive that fans were aflame. Part of the reason Twitter users were lusting was because Tomei and Isaac are both unrelenting smoke shows. However, it helped that Beirut includes a spanking scene.

How much do I pay to have Oscar Isaac tell me he’s going to teach me how to behave pic.twitter.com/Q4D1IgkxgB— steven (@fefifofilm) April 29, 2020
Then, there’s a scene where Isaac gets explicit.

I love this picture because it looks like (1) I was FaceTiming with Oscar Isaac and (2) that he was thoroughly annoyed with me the whole time, both of which are deeply erotic 2 me pic.twitter.com/ad4dh5xeqT— Erin Murphy (@HeyErinMurphy) April 29, 2020

So we all agree that Oscar Issac and Marisa Tomei should be in a movie together now, right? Right. pic.twitter.com/8Ykm83SAIT— Nerd Girl Says (@Rachael_Conrad) April 30, 2020
