Despite its flaws, this is a beautiful, thoughtful and very entertaining piece of theater. I highly recommend it. The play takes you from laughter to tears. I’ve only seen Pt 1 but eagerly look forward to Pt 2.
If you lived through the AIDS crisis of the 1980’s, this play will remind you of the community’s powerful response to such a devastating tragedy. If you didn’t, it is a vital and essential history lesson. Either way, don’t miss it.
The play is about so much more, though. It is at once both specific and universal, tethered to a moment in time yet timeless.
