About the Author
Michael Kearns has been a fixture in the world of art and politics for more than three decades, combining a mainstream career in film and television with a prolific theatrical resume that includes writing, acting, directing, and producing. His intimate connection to the two plays he chronicles in emotional detail in The Drama of AIDS began in the mid-eighties. Wearing various artistic hats, Michael contributed to the premieres of Robert Chesley's Jerker and James Carroll Pickett's Dream Man. And more than twenty years later, he remains closely involved with them. Solo performance has also been a defining feature of his career, and he has been involved with dozens of one-person shows, including many that he wrote and performed such as intimacies, Rock, Attachments, and Make Love Not War. He is also the author of several books with Heinemann, including T-Cells & Sympathy, Acting = Life (both nominated for Lambda Awards), Getting Your Solo Act Together, Life Expectancies, and The Solo Performer's Journey.
