Angels in America
Part I: Millennium Approaches
by Tony Kushner
Set in New York during the 1980s, Angels in America traces the collapse of two couplesí relationships: one due to a battle with AIDS, the other in a haze of drugs and sexual confusion. With an epic blend of sharp satire, outrageous humor and sweeping drama, the plot spans time and place, showing kaleidoscopic perspectives on love, politics, and religion. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Awards, Angels in America is the defining American play of this generation. (The Department of Theatre & Dramatic Arts Department is presenting Part I: Millennium Approaches).
Performance Dates: March 20-24, 2007
Rehearsals will begin in late January.
Rehearsals will be 5-6 times a week (usually 4 weeknights and 1 weekend day). I expect to take most of Reading Week off; I expect people would be free from Feb 17-21 (Sat-Wed) and then come back for Thurs or Fri rehearsals.
With people playing multiple parts, the play can be performed by as few as 8. I expect to gather a larger cast: around 5 women and 7 men.
