Stonewall National Museum – Wilton Manors (2157 Wilton Drive) The Sea Is Quiet Tonight by Michael Ward – Author Presentation at 7 pm. In this insightful and inspirational memoir, Michael Ward returns to the early years of the AIDS epidemic, when so little was known and so few who were diagnosed survived. He chronicles in candid detail his partner Mark’s decline and eventual death. By looking back on these devastating events, the author not only honors a generation lost to the illness but also opens a vital window onto the past, before medication helped save lives and when HIV/AIDS was usually a death sentence. Signed copies will be available for sale. Light refreshments provided courtesy of Barefoot Wine and Bubbly.

MusicWorks presents Rocket Man – A Tribute to Elton John in the Crest Theatre at Old School Square, Delray Beach at 8pm. Rus Anderson, originally from Glasgow, Scotland, has been entertaining professionally for two decades and some say his world-wide performance is a dead ringer for a young Elton John himself! In fact, his gorgeous costumes, changed repeatedly throughout the show, were actually owned by Elton and this show has earned an endorsement by the official Elton John fan club as well as the Elton John AIDS Foundation. Audiences together will walk down the Yellow Brick Road and relive the moments of Elton John’s unparalleled career. Remember when rock was young? You will after the show! Tickets $59 (premium), $39 (Main Floor Regular), $31 (Balcony), and can be purchased at: oldschoolsquare.org/events/rocket-man/

Adam is living with HIV. Broken and in great despair, he has been having a series of nightmares. He soon must confront the guilt tormenting him after betraying and infecting his now dying ex-lover, Raphael. As Adam sets out to reconnect with Raphael on the anniversary of their diagnosis, he discovers that they have both been living nightmares of their own.
Writer/director Armand Petri says: “Undetectable is a different type of HIV/AIDS movie. The film portrays functional HIV positive individuals that are not victims, and that are not afraid to be seen as anti-heroes. I was interested in the theme of accountability, and the basic idea that everything we do affects us and the people around us. Major cinematic influences to my work in [Undetectable] include Basic Instinct, Rope, Strangers on a Train; and Gone Girl.”
Kyle Patrick Darling (Michael Saul’s The Surface) stars.
