Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches 

by Tony Kushner
Directed by Richard Stockton Rand
February 21 – March 1, 2020

Winner of a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award, this epic drama traces the intertwined lives of Prior, diagnosed with AIDS; his lover, Louis, who cannot cope with his illness; Joe, a closeted gay Mormon who works for the gay and homophobic power broker Roy Cohn; Harper, an agoraphobic addict, married to Joe; Belize, a former drag queen and Prior’s nurse; Hannah, Joe’s mother from Salt Lake City; and the Angel, who appears to Prior announcing that “The Great Work” is about to begin. Kushner weaves political, intellectual, and spiritual themes to generate a powerful play that changed the world when it was first produced, with profound resonance today.
