"Sheridan Square" by Howard Ashman and Alan Menken
Howard Ashman wrote these lyrics from a place of vulnerability at a time when the HIV/AIDS epidemic was devastating the nation and the LGBTQ community in particular, who suffered in silence and stigma for years and still do. I happened to discover this song in the summer of 2011, the same day that marriage equality was granted in New York, and around the same time that "undetectable = untransmittable" was becoming accepted as scientific fact. It was a poignant reminder that although we've come a long way in the fight against HIV/AIDS and we've come a long way in accepting and valuing the LGBTQ community, this song reminds us where we came from and what (and who) was sacrificed to get here. Special thanks to Sarah Ashman Gillespie, Lynn Fusco, and Steve Loftus (piano).
