Paulo is dying of AIDS. His life partner, Lenny, is forced to stand idly by when Paulo's family handles everything. After all, only "family" is authorized. This is the New York of not long ago, when same-sex marriage was still illegal and progressive journalists are reviled for bringing such injustice to light. This is still a reality on many countries today. We must never forget.

Starting with their Autumn Arts, the Midtown International Theatre Festival will also serve as a place for artists emerging from colleges and special programs to enter into the professional world with abundant support from an experienced artistic and academic advisory. Now, established professionals and the next generation can join in.

While the skyline currently glitters with theatre festivals, there was a time when the Midtown International Theatre Festival was one of only two! John Chatterton has set the gold standard for presenting new and exciting independent theatrical works in New York.
