Jon Potter, Executive Director of the Latchis Theatre, has been instrumental in the production of this important event. It is fair to say that Elegies for Angels, Punks and Raging Queens would not have been possible without his willingness, encouragement and guidance. The team at the Latchis has been equally responsive and generous with their time and talent.

As we reflect upon the 35-year landmark of the AIDS pandemic, this show allows us to feel the heartache and celebrate the courage of those we have loved and lost. It is an honor to recognize and benefit three decades of steadfast devotion by the AIDS Project of Southern Vermont.

One of the songs in Elegies is titled, “Heroes All Around,” and we dedicate the work of cast and crew to all the heroes who have made a humanitarian difference in the struggle to end AIDS.
