Michael is HIV positive, but it's not a death sentence – not anymore. Michael just has to learn to live with it... but that's not as simple as it sounds. A musical drama that explores the fears, complications and realities of coping with a complex, chronic condition that affects every day, every relationship, every breath, Living With Henry is sometimes comic, sometimes heartbreaking, but always passionate, bold and stunningly honest.
This production stars Dora Award-winner Ryan Kelly as Michael (The Normal Heart, Mamma Mia); Dale Miller as Henry (Les Miserables, Forever Plaid); Lizzie Kurtz as Jenni (CATS, Forever Swing); John Edwards as Mathew (Rocky Horror, Hairspray); Mary Kelly as Mom (Napolean, Nunsense); and Gavin Hope as Peter (Lion King, RENT). The production features scenic, costume and lighting design by Jennifer Goodman (Stratford Shakespeare Festival); stage management by Alexa Carroll; and Assistant Stage Management by Jessica Parr.
