Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes
Part One: Millennium Approaches
Written by Tony Kushner, Directed by Fredrick J. Rubeck
McCrary Theatre, Thursday-Saturday, 7:30 p.m., Sunday, 2 p.m.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, and the Tony Award, "Angels In America" remains Kushner’s most broadly known and socially important work. Penned in 1990, the play provided a searing examination of society’s reaction to the HIV/AIDS epidemic and gay rights.
Powerful characters struggled with identity, integrity, inequality and pure survival as the world neared a new millennium with excitement and anxiety.
