BFB, I agree, FALSETTOS was the first one that came to my mind.
"Some people can thrive and bloom living life in a living room, that's perfect for some people of one hundred and five. But I at least gotta try, when I think of all the sights that I gotta see, all the places I gotta play, all the things that I gotta be at"

does that RAGING QUEENS one's title start with ELEGIES, can't recall. There is also THE QUILT but when i read the perusal and plunked out the music i wasn't impressed. It's a great idea for a musical, though....

I guarantee that at some point one or both of us will want to get out. But I also guarantee that if I don't ask you to be mine, I'll regret it for the rest of my life..."

THE LAST SESSION by Steve Schalchlin and Jim Brochu is a wonderful, small cast show about living with AIDS that still resonates today. Also, their other, more recent Off-Broadway musical, THE BIG VOICE: GOD OR MERMAN?, though not exclusively about the illness, deals with it, too. For more information, visit Steve's website, www.bonusround.com.

Doesn't Dream True by Ricky Ian Gordon also deal with HIV? I haven't been able to find out much about the plot, but from what I've read, it sounds like it does.
Jimmy, what are you doing here in the middle of the night? It's almost 9 PM!
