New York Times’ Review of ‘The AIDS Show’

Click here to view review

Originating from a show performed in Theatre Rhinoceros in San Francisco, ‘The AIDS Show’ was a documentary released in 1986 that highlights the disease and its repercussions in San Francisco. Robert Epstein’s vision for his piece was to give an all-around view of the disease, from displaying nurses who judge gay men for contracting the disease (insinuating that they ‘deserved it’) to an undiagnosed man being teased by his friends about being so prone to illness, none of them knowing what he was actually suffering from.
