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. 😉
