Manila, Philippines--To kick off its 20th anniversary, Atlantis Theatrical Entertainment Group is proud to be mounting the Manila production of Tony Kushner's ANGELS IN AMERICA: MILLENNIUM APPROACHES with some of the most critically-acclaimed Filipino actors: Art Acuna as Roy Cohn, Pinky Amador as the Angel, Angeli Bayani as Harper Pitt, Topper Fabregas as Prior Walter, Cherie Gil as Hannah Pitt, Nelsito Gomez as Louis Ironson, Andoy Ranay as Belize, and Markki Stroem as Joe Pitt.
The first part of Kushner's epic, set in 1980s New York City, zooms in on the lives of two couples: Prior Walter is abandoned by his lover, Louis, as he contracts the AIDS virus, while a closeted gay lawyer named Joe Pitt struggles in his marriage to his pill-popping wife, Harper. Their fates intertwine as they explore the questions of love, justice, identity, and change.
Among the 20th century's defining works of dramatic art, ANGELS IN AMERICA is the most Tony Award-nominated play, breaking records in Broadway's history with 10 Tony Awards including Best Play and Best Revival of a Play. It has also won a Pulitzer Prize for Drama, proving Kushner's work remains as transcendent and as potent and timely in its concerns as when it premiered on Broadway over 25 years ago.
Having worked on the play before, Director Bobby Garcia says, "We have what is really a dream cast for ANGELS IN AMERICA. It's a cast I would not have thought I could assemble in the same room."
ANGELS IN AMERICA: MILLENNIUM APPROACHES runs from March 22 to April 7, 2019, at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati. For tickets, visit TicketWorld.com.ph.
The show contains strong language and mature content; it is strongly recommended to ages 17 years old and above.
