Trivia

The characters of Ali, Gordon, Pam, and Sue in the Life Support meeting are named after HIV-positive friends of writer Jonathan Larson. The real "Ali" was Alison Gertz, a young woman who contracted HIV in the early 1980s and became well-known later in the decade as an AIDS activist. A TV movie about her life, Something to Live for: The Alison Gertz Story (1992), starred Molly Ringwald as Ali. See more »

User Reviews

 
Good document of the stage show.
17 March 2021 | by CriticsVoiceVideoSee all my reviews

It's great to have a document of the live stage show. The cast is ok. The weakest link is Will Chase. He's just not right for the role and I prefer a Latina in the role of Mimi so it's not the best cast but still good to have on file and it's better than the film version.
