But Jerry Bird, owner of Rooster's, 401 Lovett, said he is shooting for an opening date of Feb. 10. General man· ager Ray Dennis said he also was confi· dent the extt>nsive renovations required by the health department could be com· pleted in time to open next week. Rooster's was inspected on Monday, Jan. 26. Bird said he was under the impression that since the building had previously been a liquor establishment, thHe would be no difficulty meeting the rodes. But the health department is requir· mg that the bar be repainted, that new restroom ceilings be put in, that sinks be installed on inch <leper than the exist­mg equipment and that a new thrt>e· l'ompartment sink be put in. Bird i;aid he could not estimate how muc·h the work will co1->t. "But it doeRn't matter, it haR to be done," he added AIDS May Dwarf Earlier Epidemics WASHINGTON cUPll-AIDS has spread so far beyond the gay population that a heterosexual person now needs to worry ahout who else his Rexual partner has had sex with during the past 10 yearR, Health Secretary Otis Bowen warns. "The thrust of the AIDS epidemic is changing," said Bowen who spoke of the AIDS problem Thursday, Jan. 29, at a luncheon at the National Press Club. "Today, two of every three cases involve homosexuals but the disease is rapidly spreading totherestofthe popu lation. It's been estimated that by 1991, one of every 10 new caseg will he among heterosexuals." "Even if we had a vaccine now. it wouldn't substantially change our pro­j(>< ·tions becauRe over three-fourths of those with AIDS in 1991 will have come from the current pool" of between one million and 1.fi million AmericanR who now ar(' believed to be carrying thf' Alll8 virus, he said. Th(• incubation period for AIDS is unknown, Bowen said, "hut we do know that a carrier ran spread it toothrrsand not know if for about 10 years or RO. "Ho, rem(•mber, when a person ha.s fl<'X, th(•y're not just having it with that partner. they're having it with every­lxKly that partner had it with for th<• paRt 10 years," Bowen said. Bowt•n said about :30,0000 AmericanR have fallen victim to AIDS. which hl0<ks the body's ability to fight dis· eases. But 1991, he said, at least 270,000 rast•s are exp<'Cted and the scope of thP epidemic will dwarf earlier ones such as smallpox and typhoid. Bowen said one of the best weapons to prevent the spread of AIDS is by educat· ing the public. He said the country sue· cessfully educated young people about syphilis the same way. "We overcame that dilemma with rommon sense and I think we can over· come this one too," he said. "I believe that the way out is the way that the national PTA has come up with: Let each commuity decide for itself." ''Until all the con tractors get through, we really won't know what {expenses) we're talking about. Right now, we're just trying to get it done," Bird stated. Bird said he thought the strict require· ments were due to changes in the code adopted Dec. 27, 1986. But Liz Beckham, who works in the inspection supervisor's office for the city health department, said the December changes related only to food manager certification. Sections of the ordinance pertaining to plumbing requirements, including the three­compartment sink, have been in ordi-nance books since 1979, she claimed. The ('Ode of ordinances was reprinted in May 1986, but no changes in plumb· ing requirements were included, Beck­ham said. New owners of previous food and liquor establishments are not "grandfathered," and are always required to be up to code, she added. The Rooster's building, however, has been open as a bar at least twice since 1979. Its last tenant, Paper Moon, was only open about two months, and closed August 1986. The building was also the pre";ous site of Baja Sam's.

Pub· licity surrounding the recent "Commit­tee for Democratic Awareness" controversy was a key concern, with many blaming poor communication for the problems Phyllis Frye, still despondent over losing her position with the Greater Montrose Business Guild. expre8sed frustration with community representa­tivei; for failing to support a press con­ference, supposedly planned by the CDA in response to Mayor Kathy Whit­mire's denunciation of the committee's proposal. Frye said her desire to participate in the conference as a guild representative drove her to submit the contested resig­nations that led to her ouster from the business group. Frye has since filed a ]awsuit against the guild, iUI board chariman and a member of the board of trustees, seeking $500,000 in damages for "libel per se, tortious interference with business, neg· ligence and breach of contract." Bill Agosto moderated tlte recent Houston Community Forum meeting Frye said she left a business guild board meeting after hastily resigning her presidency and membershp to rush to a meeting, reportedly called by CDA members to discuss plans for the press conference. When she got to the meet· ing, however, she discovered there would be no conference, and that the committee had decided not to respond to the mayor. "When I realized that the limb I had gone out on had been cut ... I had to do some very serious evaluation about my involvement in the gay and lesbian community," Frye said. "I'm not here to chew anyone out, but you probably won't see me in the community very much l'm backing out." she remarked. Frye "'aid she felt a consensus had been reached at a forum meeting held Jan. 11 that the goals of the awareness committee were rea8onable. Forum moderator Bill Agosto responded that although organizational represents tive~ agreed about the objectives at the January meeting, there were problems becau8e of the group's original tactirs Sections of the letter sent by the CDA in its early days appeared in a front page artide that ran in the Houston Post the day after Whitmire announced she would not make any deals with .. the gays."

We need many people talking to the press," Valinski said. Agosto insisted that the controversy exploded, not because of the mayor's comments or even the press, but because "the Houston gay community uses poor political strategy.'' He recommended that gays first get involved in the larger political picture by attaching themselves to issues other than gay rights, a tactic he said has been successful in other Texas cities. Agosto cited Mike Martin. a Fort W rth lahor activist, as an example. Martm who is openly gay and active in gay righl.8 organizations, is running for the stnlt' legislature, supported by union groups who have raised $25,000 for his campaign. But Mark Stevens. a memberofHous· ton Gay Political Caucus, said the other is!'lue agenda strategy has backfired for some who have used it. Gays who have quietly taken their place in official posi­tions haxe been used non·productively as liaisons between the city and the gay community, Stevens claimed.

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court has given creditors permission to sell Montrose Garden Apartments in April, but which of the many lenders claiming an inter­est in the former J.R McConnell prop­erty will wind up owning the complex is uncertain. Chuck Parrish, an attorney for Com­monwealth Savings, which is claiming to have the largest interest in the prop· erty, said the bankruptcy order does not prohibit Commonwealth from seHing the property, but is requiring the sav­ings and loan association to give notice to all of the creditors stating an interest in the property. The requirement, Par­rish said, has effectively delayed the sa]e in such a way as to give lenders with conflicting c1aims time to present their cases. Parrish said he did not know exactly how any lenders were claiming an inter­est in the property. "But there are a bunch of them," the attorney remarked To complicate matters, the McCon­nell corporation which had owned the property did not have the money to ade­quate] y maintain it, so lenders have been covering costs of needed mainte­nance. 'The lenders want control, since they're the ones who have been she1ling out the money," Parrish said. Asked whether his client is confident of their status as the largest lender, Par­rish said, "my position as a lawyer for Commonwealth is an unequivocal yes." montrose VOICE HOUSTON.

Press International WASHINGTON-Government scient· islb are investigating two more possible anti-AIDS drugs, one of which they have begun testing in humans. The drugs belong to the same family as AZT. the compound a Food and Drug Administration panel recently recom­mended be approved for prescription use. AZT is already being supplied to many AIDS patients free of charge under expanded testing Ont- drug, dideoxycytidine, is in a phaM> I testing, meaning it is being given to a smaJI group of human~ to determine whether it causes harmful side effect!'. So far eight patients have received the drug, said Dr Samuel Broder, head of AIDS drug testing at the National Cancer Institute, He estimated 12 more will receive it before the study is fin­ished "My Jab !'howed this drug is very potent in inhibiting the virus in tissue culture," Broder said in a telephone interview. A second study to determine whether the drug is effective against AIDS symptoms will be required before anyone can say whether it is as good as AZT. or azidothymidine. So far. tests of DOC in tissue samples cultivated in lab dishes show the drug appears more potent gram for gram than AZT-meaning less of the drug may be needed to get the same virus· inhibiting effect. However, the drug may not be any more efficient at stop­ping the virus than AZT. Althoul'(h it is hard to say what will occur in human~ given the drug. DDC's strength may mean doctors could give patienL-. smaller doses thus reducing side effectFi and less of it would have to be manufactured. Broder said. Another drug, dideoxyadenosine "is further behind and not into human k>Pings yet," Broder said. "We're still learning how to formulate it and whether we can give it to animals." DDC is not a new drug, Broder said The NCI •ynthesized it in the 1960> and found it to have an effect on mouse leukemm The government is negotiat­ing with R0<·he Laboratories to take over manufacturing. All three drugs belong to a family that inhibits virus reproduction by interfering with reverse transcription , the process by which the virus' genetic material reproduces itself. The drugs fool the virus into accept· ing a false building block for RNA, the genetic material. Broder said his colleagues are also trying to develop drugs that don't belong to the AZT family and "have a few leads." hut preferred not to say more he<.·ause the work is in such early stages. These drugs focus on different targets in the viru~. .. That's not going to be so easy."' ht said. "The reverse trancriptase(thesub­stanre ui.;ed in the reverse transcription) gave an Achilles heel to the virus that really is not comparable to the other things people have come up with." When in the presence of the "dideoxy" drugs, "the virus would actually prefer the false building block to its own natu· ral substrate. It's like a teenager who would prefer junk food." AZT has been shown to improve AIDS patients' chances of surviving for a longer period of time and reduces some symptoms, such as fungal infections. It also attacks bone marrow, however, causing anemia in some patients The National Institute of Allergy and •• •ro 1H4o2u0s wtoens.1 Theex•masC f I J ~~02~4485 WE DELIVER VIDEOS Head1 and Tai/1 Abo11e the Reif -Lage Selection ol All-Mole VHS lopes -Tues Thurs and Sun Rentals $2 tor Our Members -Now Open Sunday 2 to 8 OPEN 7 DAYS .

Local Activist Named to "Gay Congress" Committee The steering committee for the National March on Washington has named Ray Hill to chair the planning committee for the first "National Lesbian and Gay Congress." slated to be held in Washington, D.C. in 1988. The Congress effort will "grow out of' the March on Washington organization after the march. Planners of the Congress are envi· sioning an asesmbly of two represents· tives, one gay man and one lesbian, from each U.S. Congressional district, Hill said. The constituent body would discuss pertinent issues and inter· coordinate regional efforts at a national level. The Congress will meet every four years, with each session lasting about five days, Hill said.

Over 60 Stations Now to Air Condom Ads By Dan Jacobson United Press International NEW YORK-A leading condom manu· facturer facing strong opposition from the major television networks and con· servative groups said last Friday one TV station already has run one of its ads and more than 60 will soon follow suit. An executive for Carter-Wallace, Inc. , promoting condoms as the best way to prevent the 8pread of AIDS. said six cable television networks have agreed to accept the ads for Trojans and the company still was hopeful the commer· cial networks will relent. "We are very conscious that we are dealing with a touchy subject," said Mark Klein, the company's vice presi­dent marketing. "It's an area of historical taboo," he said, and the networks argue that peo­ple are not ready to see condom comm er· cials. When Knight-Ridder announced ear­lier that its stations would accept con· dom ads, a spokesman for CBS responded by railing the commercials "intrusive to the moral and religious beliefs of many of our viewers." But Klein said his company's researC'h shows the vast majority of American favor condom advertising. "Opposition comes primarily from those who don't want to deal with the AIDS issue," he said. "I think they're putting thl'ir ht·ads in the sand." None of the local stations in New York City, which has the most reported cases of AIDS in the country, have arceptE.-d the t•ommercials, hut Klein said a "breakthrough" was expected soon He ~aid a tC'levision station in San Fracisco air<>d one of its spots rightaft<•r President Reagan's State of the Union address a w(•ek ago and received a favorable response from viewers. "We're promoting responsibility," he said. "I think abstinence is an admira· hie idea. But we'redealing with reality," The 15-second spot broadcast by KRON TV, an ABC affiliate in San Francisco, features an announcer say· ing: "The Surgeon General says, 'the best protection against infection barring abstinence, is use of a condom.'This is a box of Trojans, use it in good health. Trojan. For all the right reasons." The commerdal is one of four pro· duced for Trojan. One has a young man saying he goes out with "nice girls,"but "some pretty terrible things are happen ing to nice people." Another features a young woman who warns "you might know someone pretty well. But do you really know him?" The third has n man and woman saying they want to "share the respon · siblity together." None of the spots use the word "AIDS" and only the one quoting the surgeon general uSC'fi the word "con­dom." They nil end with the same line, "Trojan. For all the right reasons." Carter·Wallace released a list of 67 stations, m·twork affiliates and inde­pend<• ntH, that it said are interested in airing the psote. Last full, the company launched a multi-million dollar print advertising campaign that is now running in more than !)8 magazineR, including several women's publirationH, many of which Kh·in said would never "have even talkc·d to us" in th<• past.

The profits, esti­mated to be between $14.95 and $48.2 million, were report­edly diverted to The Little Sisters of the Forlorn's Shelter for Indigent Orphans. A spokesister for the group. Sister Pene­lope, denied receiv­ing any funds. "But we have been pray­ing for $149.95 to purchase an auto­matic, 40-cup Mr. T tea urn for the common room," she said. The sale of the 2008 TOW anti-tank missiles to the Mafia was revealed by the Secaucus Weekly Shopping News last November. President Reagan said at the time that the missiles were "strictly for defensive purposes," but he didn't know anything about it. The sale was apparently arranged by Corporal Adam Hepple, a keypunch operator m the National Security Coun­cil. Hepple allegedly told investigators that he had been approached by "an unnamed third country whose name was Sicily" to make the deal. The president said Sicily had "brow­beaten" his administration into selling weapons to the Mafia, but it wasn't Sic­ily's fault. and, anyway, he didn't know anything about it. He then called Cor­poral Hepple "a role model for our nation's youth" and fired him. Administration critics contend the arms were ransom for four Republican National Committeemen and the pro­prietor of Fred's Foot-Long Sub Shop who have been kidnapped by the Mafia The president vehemently denied this. "We don't make deals with hood­lums," he said. "We were simply trying to establish contact with moderate ele­ments in the Mafia by selling them anti­tank missiles, but I don't know anything about them, either." The head of Cicero's Little Ceasar Salad Mob. Emil (Pa) Strami, said he was a moderate. "I say one foot in con-crete is plenty," Pa Strami told report­ers. No one in Washington is certain where the figure of $14.95 to $48.2 mil­lion in profits came from. Corporal Hep­pie allegedly told investigators that the total was "something like that." He reportedly said, "Heck, I can't even bal­ance my checkbook." Asked what he had done with the money, Hepple is said to have said that he was "pretty sure" he'd put it in a Swiss bank account. "I usually keep it in my refrigerator because that's a good place if you have a fire," he apparently said. "but I checked, and it wasn't there."' Senate investigators said that "some­where betwet>n $12.14 and $47.6 mil­lion" of the money may have gone to warehout;emen, truck drivers and other middlemen" who helped deliver the arms from Fort Bennings to Pa Strami in Cicero. Corporal Hepple may have agreed. "I didn't keep track of every penny," he reportedly, allegedly or Argentine Law Against Gays Voting May Be Dropped LA PLATA. Argentina (UPl)-Officials of Buenos Aires province promised Thursday, Jan. 29, they will change a 1946 law that prohibits homosexuals from voting. The publication of the law Wednes­day in the official bulletin as a prelude to legislative elections next November drew complaints from angry homosexu­als, officials said. Juan Antonio Portesi, minister of government for the province, said Gov. Alejandro Armendariz will ask the legislature to strike down the restriction before elections. "What was important in 1946 doesn't have the same relevancy now," Portesi said. Alejandro Salazar, president of the Argentine Homosexual Community, said returning the vote to homosexuals would be "stupendous." apparently said. Also missing is $10 million that some­one in Washington persuaded the Ratt of Phynkia to donate directly to The Lit­tle Sisters of the Forlorn. The Ratt, a strong family man, explained that he had "always hoped to have a sister of my own someday." Investigators said they would get around to looking for the $10 million "as soon as we have a minute to spare, damn it." On his weekly radio address, the pres­ident said the buck stops with him. "I take full responsibility for the entire affair," he said, "even though I didn't have the slightest idea what was going on." There was one bright spot in the news. Sister Penelope said she and the other Little Sisters had raised $4l.14 in a Gala Used Tire Sale over the weekend. "Only $108.81 to go!" she cried, a tear of joy coursing from behind her gold-rimmed glasses and down her rosy cheek. No one was more moved than kindly Al Koesterman, owner of Koesterman's Appliances. "I'm going to try to keep that Mr. T tea urn on hand until the sisters get enough money to buy it," he said. "But frankly, their chances don't look too good."

Review by Bill O'Rourke Montrcne Voter o From the Hip In the past, The De Lauren tis Entertain· ment Group has been known for huge extravaganzas like King Kong or Orea. Their new release From the Hip shows that they put their money in other pla­ces this time. They got a really intelli· ~ent, though wacky script from David E. Kelley and Bob Clark. They got gor­geous, though very realiStic, !-lets. They surrounded their stars with an army of the best character &C'tors in the busi­ness The film·~ got class. This is a feel-good movie. The tradi­tion coming down from Frank Capra and Jimmy Stewart of a world full of warm and interesting people in which one man really matters meets the Rosa lind Rust5ell/ Aunti Mame tradition of the off-the-wall rugged individualist who survives a crisis in self-confidence. They get along swimmingly Elizabeth Perkins plays an under­employed actress who works most of the time with a program helping emotion­ally disturbed children. Her apartment is nothing but a bedroom! White on white with a huge triple dormer window looking into a screened porch crowded with trees and birds. She is just as inn~ cent, open and accepting as her apart­ment, which is good because she's in love with an extraordinary remarkable man. Judd Nelson plays Stormy Weathers. He's in his first year with a prestigious law firm_ He sometimes worries that he's sold out since he isn't a storefront lawyer, but he's doing what he loves. In his own occasionally exasperating, unscrupulous way, he is going to beccme a trial lawyer in the style of Clarence Darrow. His courtroom histri· oniC!'> provide most of the humor in the film and they are great. Take, for exam­ple. the "vibrator" he somehow finds m thf'! pro. ecuting attorney's briefcase. Or his fight to get the word "ass" admitted into evidence at! a description of the plaintiff attention of John Hurt's character. He im1ists that Stormy defend him in a seemingly unwinable murder trial. He's certainly unlikeable, but is he a psy· chotic killer? On the eve of the last day of the trial_ acquittal virtually assured, Stormy becomes convinced that he is. You see, even though the upper half of his body was charred beyond recogni­tion in the bomb blast, that little thing below was just not his.

But how can he reverse all that he's dently fallen for the glory of his man· done in the trial so far? How can one hood just as much as for his charm, they man make a difference? decide to find him and make him choose This 1s the best new comedy I've seen so far this year. It may call people greedy, egotistical or willing to con the law. But it never calls anyone stupid. Its style is appealing, too. It's simple, force­ful and direct. It shoots "from the hip." o Outrageous Fortune Outrageous Fortune is sometimes so funny you want to pound on your chair's arm. Sometimes it's so exciting you 'II be on the edge of your seat. Some­times the music (Patti LaBelle, the Eurythmics) is so good you could dance in the aisle Then sometimett the whole production is just !'lort of dead in the water between them. Given the witty, resourceful cunning they use to find him, I find their reason for the search a little demeaning to women.

FEBRUARY 6, 1987 MONTROSE VOICE 15 Opposition Voiced Over AIDS Testing Proposal ~u Bemoriam By Sheri Cohen Darbonne MontrosP Voice Representatives of AIDS organizations around the country are planning to attend a public hearing in Atlanta Feb. 24-25 to express opposition to a Centers for Disease Control proposal urging rou­tine AIDS antibody testing of blood drawn from patients entering hospitals for other reasons, and from couples ap­plying for marriage licenses. "I've been talking with my colleagues in the National AIDS Task Force," Dickson said Tuesday, Feb. 3. CDC directors announced the hearing on Monday. "I think all representatives of AIDS organizations are extremely concerned that the CDC is proposing this type of massive testing, without federal legisla­tion to protect against discrimination for those who are tested," Dickson said. "Without anti-discrimination legisla­tion, there is no way any AIDS organi­zation can support any type of routine testing program," Dickson said. With guarantees against discrimination in housing, employment, and insurance, it would probably be all right to expand testing, provided certain guidelines are met, he added. The government, however, should be concentrating its efforts on "bringing about behavior change" through risk rrduction education if it wants to con· trol the spread of the disease, Dickson said "There are too many problems with routine testing," Dickson stated. "It would drive the people who need to be tt'sted further underground." Another implication not being consi· dered by lhe CDS i• the potential impact of such a program on the federal budget. "When people lose their insurance, the government will have the burden of delivering health care. And who's going to pay for counseling of the people who are tt>sted?" Even at the Institute for Immunologi· cal Disorders, where the administration is taking the position that all high-risk individuals should be tested, the CDC suggestion is thought to be inadequate. Dan Moreschi, an administrator at the institute, said he was "horrified" the agency is recommending informed test· ing while making no provision for pr~ and post·test counseling. Unless what he called the "educational curve" is in place for those being tested for the AIDS antibody, Moreschi said, "I can see all kinds of calamities occurring." Four elements are crucial in the test process, according to Moreschi. The per· son being tested must first be educated as to what the results mean. He or she should have the option to take the test anonymously. Informing anyone of a positive result should be done in the presence of a physician or counselor and the patient should be counseled. Lastly, whoever is doing the test must be able to refer the patient to the right facilities to take whatever steps can be taken. Dr. James Haughton, director of the City of Houston Health Department, suggeiiled that the government could be spending an inordinate amount of money with little results by undertak· ing mass testing, if local statistics are any indication. The city's blood bank tested !IH,000 units of donated blood for the AIDS antibody in 1986, with only 85 testing repeatedly serum positive, Haughton said. The 85 positives included some who had indicated they might be at risk, and had donated for research purposes only, he noted "Additionally, only 75 of the 8.5 were confirml'<I positive by the Western Blot, a confirmatory test," Haughton said. o We're Changing Our Schedule The Montrose Voice is suspending publication of our "Midweek Extra" Tuesday edition and will concentrate on pub1ishing a bigger, better Friday "Weekend" edition. The Tuesday edition, although well read, has failed to pick up the advertising support needed to cover its expenses. A though we don't expect Houston's economy to completely turn around within 60 days, we expect enough improvement to warrant restablishing the Tuesday edition about that time. Additionally, our advertising support has always shown an increase in the summer months. Until such time as we re-establish the Tuesday edition, we will discontinue our tC'levision listings. Thr Montrose Voice is basically two publications in one. We are the general· circulation newspaper of Montrose and we are a gay publication. As th<' "Ni'wspaper of Montrose" (that's our slogan}we are much like the Bellaire Texan or the Pasadena Citizen-a small neighborhood newspaper serving a partic· ulnr area As a gay newspaper though, we are th<' only gay publication in Houston with a fulltimr news staff and tht"' only gay publication in the U.S. with a major wire t-1<'rvice affiliation Thosl' who has been followers of th<' Voic<' during the past six years know we are always striving for higher goals and are nE'ver satisfied with the status quo. Watch us for our next announcement. It is our pleasure serving you. o An Error in Judgement on Our Part Last week the Montrose Voice published an advertisement that stated "Do You Know This Man?" with photos of the man. Another publication also published the ad with an additional word. This ad was placed in the Voice from an advertising agency with which we have done buRiness for many years. There was nothing in the Voice ad to imply anything negative about the pictured individual. Nevertheless, even in the innocent presentation of tht" ad which tht" Voice Printffi. we now regret having accepted it. We apologize to all concerned and wish a h<·lnt<-d happy birthday to the man pictured The blood bank confirms the test before notifying peop]e of a positive result, although screened blood testing anti­body positive is eliminated from the blood supply, he said. "This raises the possibility that mass testing could produce fa1se positives," Haughton commented. The very sensitive HIV antibody test was originally devised for screening the blood supply, not for diagnostic pur­poses, he noted. Testing of the general popu]ation, per· sons identifying themselves as not in the high-risk population, resulted in positive tests for only .04 percent of those tested, Haughton said. At average costs of administering the test, the 181,000 tests would have cost $7.25 million, or $96,533 per positive resu]t, Haughton pointed out. At the Montrose Clinic, 3200 people were tested voluntarily in 1986. Of these, Haughton said, 500 indicated they were not in high-risk groups. "They were, however, somehow con­cerned enough to go in for the test," he said. Of the 500, only 22 tested positive, or only four percent. If the government is concerned about the spread of the disease into the gen· era) population, what needs to be done is to change the emphasis of educational efforts, Haughton said. High-risk behaviors rat.her than high.risk groups should be emphasized so that risky behaviors can be avoided, he said. Haughton said he plans to attend the enc hearing this month.

It comes wrapped around love and hate, pride and rue, courage and fear, and humor and tragedy. It is certainly in the midst of life that we are in death and in the midst of gruesome death we truly feel alive There is a killer epidemic loose amongst us This play purposefully never names it. The very sight or sound of its name brin~s too many automatic resparuies. Frighten.<! people have built up illusions around the name. They block out much of the terrifying reality and help convince people that this dis· case is something that happens to other people. People like to believe in their own earthly immortality. even though they know it to be myth. This play is about debunking those self delusions. The play begins in 1980. Then no one, doctors included, really knew anything about acquired immune deficiency syn­drome. The only answer was to give up sex entirely. Ned Weeks (John Gould Rubin) sees his fi,..t friend die. He has always been known for a short, sharp temper and a big mouth. He is the kind of attack-from­the- outbide agitator that any movement needs for momentum. He swear::; onto the fight again.I the disease and off of sex. In the fight, he joins Dr. Emma Brookner (Suzy Hurst>, a compassion· ate outwardly cold doctor, wheelchair bound from polio. This serves as a reminder that we are not the first people oppresed by disease. It also provides a glimmer of hope. Shortly after Dr Brookner contracted it, that disease was fairly well defeated. Bruce Niles <Brandon Smith) was a green beret. But in this fight, he wants to battle from inside the system. He mu. t be discrete. If he breaks down too many closet walls he could lose his important job at the bank. Mickey Marcus (Donald Berman) con­tinually puts his job with the city on the line. He is driven by the fact that he helped lead his people out of the closets of their self-opperession into all of this. Is he now a mass murderer? But he stiJl believes in freedom. He becomes a gen· erally good natured nervous wreck, but he still carries on. Tommy Boatwright(JeffBennett)is a Southern belle. But don't let that campy manner fool you. This man is very deep, very kind and very efficient. No one can stay sane very long when he is totaily ignoring or sublimating his sex drive. Ned is no exception. There h; an utterly romantic, comically awk­ward scene when he falls in love with Felix Turner (Michel R. Gilll He is an arts writer for the New York T;me~. He lives a fairly liberated life, but he doesn't work et deserving it. He catches the di.sea e. Playwright Larry Kramer has given all of our squabbling gay leaders an OJ)E'n-handed. honest tradition. You can see where his beliefs lie. but you can also see his respect for those who disagree with him. Everything is done with dig­nity and honor, except for the govern· ment and the press. The petty, half-hearted, way-too-late response of those groups belie what one would have expected the natural human res1xmseti of a possibly gay mayor and a president who, as an actor, must have had iray friends to be. This production approaches a level of perfection. George Anderson is one of the two or three best directors in the city. He has assembled a cast that is both Jeff Bennett (left) as Tommy Boatu:right, John Gould Rubin (center) as Ned Weeks and Donald Berman as Mickey Marcus m the Alley Theatre 's Arena Stage production "The Normal Heart," playing now through March 8 extremely talented and very good look­ing. This riveting drama is one of the few plays each year where I forget that those people are acting and I'm not peeping into real life.
