"​riveting performances"​ "​​beautiful masterpiece" "worth every minute" "​magnificent direction"



"A victory for theater, for the transforming power of the imagination to turn devastation into beauty." — The New Yorker

Harrowing, uproarious, and magical, Pulitzer Prize-winning Angels in America has become a landmark of the American stage.   Angels is an epic tale that ranges between heaven and earth, fantasy and reality, outrageous comedy and despair.


It’s 1985. Ronald Regan has been elected to a second term.  New York City is in the clutches of a mysterious plague that people are grasping to understand. Prior, a young man in the trenches of this health crisis, discovers devastating news that his lover, Louis, just cannot accept.  Mormon couple Joe and Harper struggle with his identity crisis and her self-medicating Valium habit. Roy Cohn, a notorious lawyer from the McCarthy hearings, is in blustery full-blown denial of his own life-changing predicament. 


And the ghost of Ethel Rosenberg appears to distill it all down to one prophetic statement: “History is about to crack wide open.”


Poetic, heroic, human, and not to be missed.


Angels in America contains strong sexual situations, explicit language, and nudity.


Angels in America runs approximately two hours and 45 minutes, plus one 15 minute intermission.
