Plot Summary

Based on Tony Kushner's lauded play, this sweeping production, which mixes real-life and fictional characters, is set against the backdrop of the 1980s AIDS epidemic.

Meanwhile, Cohn's employee Joe Pitt (Patrick Wilson), a closeted, married gay attorney, also struggles with his sexuality.
