All That He Was
About All That He Was
This brand-new version of the award-winning 1993 musical is a moving and surprisingly funny account of one man’s struggle with AIDS and the reverberations of his death. The deceased functions as host and narrator, invisible among the friends and family assembled to pay him final respects. Hoping for a day when the shattered pieces of his life can come together, he leads them on a journey of shared reminiscences.
"All That He Was" toured nationally in the 90’s, was featured at the Kennedy Center in Washington DC, and represented the US at the Festival Vox Humana in Barcelona, Spain, before settling in to a critically-acclaimed run in Los Angeles, where it received a Robby award for Best New Musical. The Los Angeles Times said it “Arches from dysfunctionalism, jealousies and misunderstandings to unsteady truces and well-earned unities …It carries on a bright, serious, witty and inclusive dialogue with anyone who may sit down in front of it.”
