From cabarets and candlelight vigils to full-scale Broadway productions such as Angels in America and Rent, over the past fifteen years public performances and dramatic texts have shaped, and been shaped by, the history of AIDS. Author David Roman examines the ways that gay men have used alternative, activist, and mainstream theatre and performance to intervene in the AIDS crisis. He considers solo performance, community-based projects, mixed-media events, activist demonstrations, and AIDS education theatre initiatives.
