This special evening will draw more than 500 guests to the Mead Center for American Theater in Southwest Washington, DC and will benefit equally Arena Stage and our selected partner for this event, Washington AIDS Partnership (www.washingtonaidspartnership.org). As the largest private funder of HIV/AIDS prevention, education, and advocacy in the region, the Partnership awards more than $1 million in local grants annually. We are delighted that the Partnership's Executive Director, Channing Wickham, serves on the Benefit Committee forThe Normal Heart event.
The story of a city in denial, The Normal Heart unfolds like a real-life political thriller-as a tight-knit group of friends refuses to let doctors, politicians and the press bury the truth of an unspoken epidemic behind a wall of silence. A quarter-century after it was written, this outrageous, unflinching, and totally unforgettable look at the sexual politics of New York during the AIDS crisis remains one of the theatre's most powerful evenings ever. Arena Stage is proud to launch the national tour of this important and exhilarating work of theater, winner of three Tony Awards including Best Revival of a Play.
