This year’s edition of this reliably entertaining annual story­telling series focuses on the thrills and pain caused by romance — from a how-to on the proper way to execute a teenage dance-floor make-out, to an elderly woman’s lament on the secret STD epidemic at a retirement home due to the introduction of Viagra.

Dance

‘Radio and Juliet’
Friday and Saturday, 8 p.m.,
NYU Skirball Center for the Arts, 566 LaGuardia Pl., $20-$35
