Photo Flash: Regeneration Theatre Revives AIDS History Play AS IS

In 1985, when As Is first appeared at the Circle Theatre, AIDS was a new moment in time. A pandemic with no cure or reason. AS IS was one of the first plays, and subsequent teleplay, depicting how AIDS was affecting the LGBTQ Community. Its power was also in that it focused on a small group of friends - and what it did to them. It proceeded Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart by about a month.

Regeneration Theatre chooses one of the first works exploring AIDS from a personal point of view to open its 2018 season - AS IS by William M. Hoffman performing February 1-11 (Feb. 1-3, 5, 8-10 @7:30 p.m.; Feb 4 & 11 @ 2:30 p.m.) at the Workshop Theatre, 312 West 36th Street, NYC. Tickets are $18 and available at regeneration.brownpapertickets.com.
