A Play in the Mainstage Theater

Angels in America: Part One, Millenium Approaches is a metaphorical and symbolic vision of America during 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. In Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, set in New York City, a gay man is abandoned by his lover when he contracts the AIDS virus, and a closeted Mormon lawyer’s marriage to his pill-popping wife stalls. Other characters include the infamous McCarthy-ite lawyer Roy Cohn, Ethel Rosenberg, a former drag queen who works as a nurse, and an angel. Angels in America is an epic drama that has deservedly earned awards for its portrayal of contemporary America–its mixture of brutal reality and miraculous fantasy, its tragedy and comedy, cruelties and compassion.
