Primary Stages, the well-regarded Off-Broadway troupe that most recently provided a home for Terrence McNally’s Dedication, celebrated the opening of its new production In The Continuum on Oct. 2.
Running concurrently with Dedication and performed on that play’s set at the three-theater 59E59 complex, In The Continuum deals with the on-going and ever-deepening HIV/AIDS crisis on the continent of Africa. Primary Stages artistic director Andrew Leynse was so moved by the piece in a recent reading, that he committed to producing a short run of the play this season.

In The Continuum runs through Oct. 30.
