A "hilarious and heartbreaking" Off Broadway sensation and cult hit, The Last Session gathers singers and an offstage engineer in a recording studio to record a new pop/gospel album with an old friend, faded pop star, Gideon. But the mix is dramatically altered by the unexpected arrival by a Bible thumping, homophobic gospel singer. All of them are deeply connected to Gideon yet are unaware that he carries a big secret: that he plans to end his struggle with AIDS after the session. Harmony is restored through friendship and the power of music.
