My Coma Dreams on DVD to benefit TAG

My jazz/theater piece My Coma Dreams is now available on DVD to benefit Treatment Action Group, a global health non-profit think tank that works to solve the problems of AIDS, Hepatitis-C and TB world-wide.

In addition to the 85-minute performance, there are extra behind-the-scenes interviews and feature with the participants.

World AIDS Day is December 1st and this is an important cause.  The holidays are coming, so this would make a great gift.  😉
