East Village. 1990.  American Theater Company teams up with About Face Theatre to create a fresh look at Jonathan Larson’s 1996 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning rock opera. At the end of the 1980’s, a group of Bohemian artists struggle to find life, love and art in a brutal economy and the height of the AIDS crisis.  Director David Cromer will bring a staggering reality to this landmark musical.
