Vawter performed in most of the group's works until his death from complications due to AIDS in 1994 at the age of 45.

In his final work for the stage, Vawter explored the themes of sexual identity in his play Roy Cohn/Jack Smith, a series of two monologues that contrast the characters of two gay men who died of AIDS.
