ANGELS IN AMERICA
By Tony Kushner
Directed by Sean Murray

America in the mid-1980s. In the midst of the AIDS crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, New Yorkers grapple with life and death, love and sex, heaven and hell. Alternately hilarious and heartbreaking, it was awarded two Tony Awards for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
“Daring and dazzling! The most ambitious American play of our time.” -Newsweek
*Explicit sexual situations, nudity and adult language

Performed in Rotating Rep:

Part One: Millennium Approaches
It’s 1985. Ronald Reagan has been elected to a second term.  New York City is in the clutches of a mysterious plague that people are grasping to understand. Prior, a young man in the trenches of this health crisis, discovers devastating news that his lover, Louis, just cannot accept.  Mormon couple Joe and Harper struggle with his identity crisis and her self-medicating Valium habit. Roy Cohn, a notorious lawyer from the McCarthy hearings, is in blustery full-blown denial of his own life-changing predicament.

Part Two: Perestroika
Part two begins as Prior, now a reluctant prophet set on a mission by a testy angel, must begin the work of rebuilding a devastated world. Characters, having faced annihilation, must now confront their own stubborn indestructability. Perestroika is a story about locating hope in the midst of chaos.
