This one-night-only event will support Pride Films and Plays and Chicago-area AIDS services charities including AIDS Foundation of Chicago (AFC) and the Test Positive Aware Network (TPAN).
For one night only, Pride Arts Center will host a benefit concert presentation of the 1993 AIDS-themed Musical ALL THAT HE WAS. 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.
