After touring the country for the past couple of years and then a run last year at a converted church in Harlem, the immersive theater piece As Much As I Can is finally back, this time with a run at Joe’s Pub. The show was created with and about young gay and bisexual black men living in two cities where the HIV epidemic is especially prevalent in their communities: Jackson, MS and Baltimore, MD and is part of ViiV Healthcare's four-year,  10 million dollar initiative called ACCELERATE!, which encourages community-driven solutions to the continuing HIV/AIDS crisis.

Director James Walsh creates magic with this intimate, yet spectacular, show and your heart will be racing from start to finish. The acting is raw, gritty, and so real you often can't tell who is an audience member and who is a cast member. As the story progresses in this new version created specifically to be performed at Joe’s Pub, audience members are transported to various places: HIV clinic waiting rooms, living rooms, bedrooms, a drag bar, and even a church complete with live gospel music. 

As Much As I Can is an absolute must-see!

Runs September 12 - 16.
