Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches
The most honored play in a generation concludes the Wilma’s 2011/2012 Season – and then returns for the 20th Anniversary of Part Two: Perestroika to kick off 2012/2013. Winner of two Tony® Awards for Best Play and a Pulitzer Prize, Angels in America melds love, hate, religion, and politics into a uniquely American epic. The year is 1985. In New York City, Roy Cohn, the politically powerful right-wing lawyer angrily denies his diagnosis of AIDS while his protégé – a court clerk and Republican Mormon – struggles with a Valium-addicted wife. Simultaneously, an ailing yet spirited gay man begins to hear messages from a supernatural being that build to an exhilarating conclusion.
