Angels in America: Millennium Approaches
Angels in America:
By Tony Kushner
Set during the early days of the AIDS epidemic, two vastly different couples in New York City grapple with seemingly insurmountable forces, both internal and external. Angels in America provides thrilling juxtapositions of the intimate with the spectacular, the very public (politics) with the very private (love and sexuality), and rich humor with stark pathos. Societal and personal change are chronicled with deftness and empathy even for the drama’s most malicious characters. Full of passion, compassion, and big ideas, Tony Kushner’s epic Part One of Angels in America is no less than one of the most important plays of the late twentieth century.
