Living With Henry is the title of a new Canadian musical that explores present day issues of living with HIV such as stigma, disclosure, and interpersonal relationships. The musical will be premiering in New York City this summer from July 23-29 as part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival.
"It has become apparent that there are few, if any, theatrical productions that discuss HIV in the 'now' context," says writer and director Christopher Wilson, who is himself HIV-positive. "Living With Henry is a contemporary theatrical view of HIV/AIDS, framing it as a chronic illness rather than a death sentence."
