David Drake's hit Off-Broadway solo show, a semi-autobiographical performance piece with several poignant stories about growing up gay in the '90s, will be performed online by Drake and an ensemble of gay actors for a Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS benefit.

From his brilliant opening monologue describing the impact playwright Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart had on him, to his amusing riff on "Why I Go to the Gym," the gay tales recall a tumultuous time for gay men in New York City.

Directed by Robert La Fosse, the all-star cast from the 20th anniversary production includes Brandon Cordeiro, Robin De Jesús, André De Shields, David Drake, Claybourne Elder, Rory O'Malley, Anthony Rapp, Wesley Taylor, Chad Ryan, Donald C. Shorter, Jr., Aaron Tone, and BD Wong.
