Epic Theatre Concludes 2013-14 Season with ANGELS IN AMERICA, Beg. Tonight
Epic Theatre concludes its 2013-2014 season with both parts of Tony Kushner's masterful "Angels in America."
It's the 1980's in New York City, and a plague is ravaging the gay community. Roy Cohn is one of the Kings of New York, but he's about to face a reckoning for his crimes. A young Mormon couple struggle to maintain their marriage when faced with drug addiction and suppressed desire. At the same time, a gay couple faces disease and death. As the lines between reality and fantasy blur and dissolve, the promise of a new millennium and the American dream come crashing down around them.
Religion, politics, love, and power collide in one of the greatest plays of the last century by one of its most ingenious playwrights.
