This is a great way to enjoy a wonderful new performance in Austin while giving back to community.

Quadrilogy) set against the background of 1985-86�an era of horrible politics and awesome pop culture: Johnny goes to jail, George threatens his step-mother Julie Rose with a paternity suit over their love child, Chuckie; and Ben gets the new breakthrough Elisa test for HIV after a violent date rape.
