Angels in America: Millennium Approaches


a drama by Tony Kushner

Department of Theatre & Drama
Directed by Daniel Cantor


In the emerging AIDS crisis of the mid-1980s, the lives of five New York City residents collide as they grapple with love, sex, and disease during the conservative Reagan era. As their lives intersect in unexpected ways, they struggle to find solace and meaning, with a little supernatural intervention.

Debuted 26 years ago, Angels in America: Millennium Approaches, remains as controversial and influential as when it was first presented. Playwright Tony Kushner’s first major work, Angels opened at the Eureka Theatre in San Francisco before moving to Broadway in 1993. A combination of serious and funny, real and magical, the play earned critical acclaim along with numerous awards including the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Paired with the sequel, Perestroika, the two play series Kushner called A Gay Fantasia on National Themes would become a landmark for sociopolitical works. In reviewing the National Theatre’s revival of the work (recently presented live on film by UMS), Ben Brantley of The New York Times stated “An expressly political response to a specific social crisis, Angels might seem to be too topical for immortality…But the climate of fear and anger Mr. Kushner summoned feels, if anything, even more pervasive today than it did when Angels first opened.” Come experience this powerful groundbreaking work filled with wicked humor.

This play contains strong language and sexual content. Recommended for mature audiences.
