Acts of Intervention: Performance, Gay Culture, and AIDS

Notes

This volume examines the ways gay men have used theatre and performance to intervene in the AIDS crisis. It discusses dramatic texts and public performances–from cabarets and candlelight vigils to full-scale Broadway productions that have shaped, and been shaped by, the history of AIDS in national, regional, and local contexts.
