The 1993 AIDS-themed musical ALL THAT HE WAS is open and running until September 15 at the Pride Arts Center. This Jeff-Recommended production, directed by Cousineau, is specifically crafted for the Pride venue, with new music and a newly revised script. With music by Cindy O’Connor and book and lyrics by Larry Todd (Johnson) Cousineau, this winner of the National Playwright’s Award and the ACTF Musical Theatre Award is a moving and surprisingly funny account of one man’s struggle with AIDS and the reverberations of his death. The deceased functions as host and narrator, invisible among the friends and family assembled to pay him final respects. Hoping for a day when the shattered pieces of his life can come together, he leads them on a journey of shared reminiscences.
Get tickets before this beautiful show closes September 15th!
