Auditions for our Adult Series 2016-17 season
The rise of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City between 1981 and 1984 is seen through the eyes of writer/activist Ned Weeks, founder of a prominent HIV advocacy group. Ned prefers loud public confrontations to the calmer, more private strategies favored by his associates, friends, and closeted lover Felix Turner. Their differences of opinion lead to frequent arguments that threaten to undermine their mutual goal.
Tommy is a "deaf, dumb and blind kid" who retreats into himself after the death of his father. His mother, Nora, and stepfather Frank take him to see a specialist but Tommy is apparently a hopeless case. That is, until Tommy discovers that "he sure plays a mean pinball." Tommy gains fame when he defeats the Pinball Wizard for the world championship. As a result, Tommy becomes such a celebrity that he even founds his own religious cult. But his fans begin to commercialize his fame, while Tommy wants to stick to the straight and narrow. When Tommy wants to end the commercialization of his message, his supporters accuse him of being hypocritical and turn on him.
