Theatre Information

Walter Kerr Theatre (New York, NY)
219 West 48th St.
Actually, Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes is not one play but two. Millennium Approaches and Perestroika were the closing statements of last century – an epic double-comedy of love and hate, heaven and earth, past and future. Now, a generation after Tony Kushner’s masterpiece first appeared, a black President who supports gay marriage is up against a Mormon Republican for the White House, and Angels in America is the perfect guide to the essential questions of our times. Exactly what are the forces that drive the manic history of this new millennium? What does it mean to live in a free society? What might it mean to live in a good society?
