February  4–March  5, 2017


Set in 1980s New York City, Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece follows a gay man abandoned by his lover when he contracts the AIDS virus and a closeted Mormon lawyer’s stalling marriage to his pill-popping wife. Other characters include the infamous McCarthy-ite lawyer Roy Cohn, Ethel Rosenberg, a former drag queen-turned-nurse and an angel. More than 20 years after its premiere, Angels in America remains one of the most powerful plays in American history.
