"Acts of Intervention skilfully intertwines performance theory, social criticism, queer theory, and history to prove that in order to understand fully the social and political relevance of AIDS, it is necessary to look at artistic productions and performances." -- New York Blade News"This is a fascinating book ... Roman has done an excellent job in bringing a wealth of information about performance, gay culture, and AIDS to the reader. A highly recommended book for all libraries." -- AIDS Book Review Journal" ... a profound and unique book, with a personal voice and public importance." -- Michael Warner" ... among the best there is to offer in gay/lesbian theatre and performance studies." -- Jill Dolan
This volume examines the ways gay men have used theatre and performance to intervene in the AIDS crisis. It discusses dramatic texts and public performances--from cabarets and candlelight vigils to full-scale Broadway productions such as Angels in America and Rent--that have shaped, and been shaped by, the history of AIDS in national, regional, and local contexts.
