“Angels In America: Millennium Approaches” Opens Tonight

Angels-PosterSouthSide Theater Company will present perhaps their most ambitious show yet, the Pulitzer Prize winning play, Angels In America: Millennium Approaches by Tony Kushner.

From SouthSide Theatre:

Arguably one of the best plays written, Angels In America covers many themes and issues. AIDS, The Reagan era, and politics among others. The year is 1985: Ronald Reagan has just been reelected to a second term, and the deadly AIDS epidemic is at its height in New York City. Tony Kushner’s epic historical drama captures the lives of the HIV-positive Prior; Louis, his lover; Joe, a closeted, gay Mormon; his Valium-addicted wife Harper; Roy Cohn, a notorious lawyer from the McCarthy hearings who is dying of AIDS; Belize, his African American nurse; Hannah, Joe’s mother from Utah; and the Angel, a terrifyingly beautiful herald of the apocalypse. As these characters discover, confront, and seduce each other during a time of death, hypocrisy, and tumultuous change, Kushner summons a restless pastiche of the historical, theological and the political—all told with surging theatricality by a company of eight actors.

Directed by: Andrew Williams, Jordon Carnegie, and the Cast
