“Angels in America Part I: Millennium Approaches”
“Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes” is a play in two parts: Millennium Approaches and Perestroika. A quarter-century after stunning the theater world, one of the greatest theatrical journeys of our time returns to Harrisburg in an all-new production. As politically incendiary as any play in the American canon, “Angels in America” also manages to be, at turns, hilariously irreverent and heartbreakingly humane. Tackling Reganism, McCarthyism, immigration, religion, climate change, and AIDS against a backdrop of New York City in the mid-1980’s, no contemporary drama has succeeded so indisputably with so ambitious a scope.
