Absolutely spectacular. One of the best ACT productions I have been to in years. Of course,the play is still incredibly relevant, but the acting, staging and direction were top knotch. The moment it ended everyone was on their feet.

The play has a good story, excellent acting, and fine pacing. I thought the content might be dated, but it soared above the calendar and continues to be current.

Intense experience. A window into the fear and frustration associated with gays in the early 70's attempting to get the medical community and the government to engage in the AIDS epidemic.
