Angels In America Part One: Millennium Approaches  

Angels In America Part One: Millennium Approaches $21.81 ex GST
$23.99 inc GST
Angels in America is a magnificent epic for our times. Subtitled 'A Gay Fantasia on National Themes', it explores sexual, racial, religious, political and social issues confronting America during the Reagan years, as the AIDS epidemic spreads. 

Prior, visited by ghosts of his ancestors and abandoned by his lover after his diagnosis with AIDS, is wondering if he is still sane when the angels select him to be their prophet. Powerbroker Roy Cohn also has the virus - but he believes that only the powerless can have that particular illness, and so kicks back against his diagnosis.

In the 'melting pot where nothing melted' of modern America, the nation's reaction to the sickness – and its sufferers – is laid bare.

Review
Angels in America is a landmark not just among AIDS plays or gay dramas but in American theatre...It establishes Kushner as the most important American playwright to emerge since David Mamet -  Village Voice

Cast : 6M, 3F, doubling possible
