Popular Rufus Wainwright!
Friday evening, Rufus Wainwright - a much-sought-after stage performer and recording artist - is slated to attend a screening of "We Were Here" at the historic Castro Theatre in picturesque San Francisco.
The insightful documentary - directed by David Weissman - zeroes in on the perspective of five locals who witnessed the outbreak of the A.I.D.S. pandemic and the havoc it wrought on the Castro neighborhood (and elsewhere) at the height of the shocking crisis.
According to the producers, by the time the killer virus was identified - and subsequently under control - more than 15,000 San Franciscans were felled (mostly gay men).
The benefit for the Shanti Project and Project Inform has been causing quite a buzz in recent days.
Needless to say, the unveiling at the Art Deco Venue, is expected to sell-out.
In addition to Wainwright and the director - story-tellers featured in the poignant documentary (Paul Boneberg, Guy Clark, Eileen Glutzer, Daniel Goldstein, and Ed Wolf ) are scheduled to appear for a Q & A.
