About STILL AT RISK
Kevin, a surviving activist from the front lines of the AIDS crisis, finds himself struggling to find his place and purpose in contemporary gay culture. When a gay fundraising event threatens to erase the history he was part of creating, Kevin’s anger and passion are renewed and he is confronted with the challenge of how to motivate change in this new climate of visibility. Along the way, Kevin’s raw and slightly unhinged methods provoke everyone who can help him, damage long friendships and eventually expose some dark secrets.
Hilarious, sharp, and deeply moving, Still at Risk is a powerful look at the personal and political hazards of rewriting the past and one man’s attempt to move forward. Full Casting for Still at Risk will be announced in the coming weeks.

He has also adapted four classic musicals – Hair, On the Twentieth Century, Chess, and Funny Girl – for The Actors Fund’s concert series.
