Stacey Logan did a superb job of conveying the care and frustrations of a physician, a polio survivor in a wheelchair, who is dubbed “Doctor Death” for her unstinting commitment to her AIDS patients.
Brian Hamilton brought Southern, subversive humor to Tommy Boatwright, and Terry Veal was excellent as the New York mayor's gay aide, who suggests that anger may not be the best way to influence his boss.
Even more crucial was Michael Jones' low key but heartfelt portrayal of Weeks' straight, Jewish, lawyer brother, who resolves their differences and accepts him as an equal, in the play's cathartic final scene.
Exposing its characters' hearts in terms almost guaranteed to touch spectators' hearts, the R-rated City Rep version of the play, which won three Tony Awards for best revival in 2011, is highly recommended.
