The AIDS epidemic is escalating, the ozone layer is weakening and God has abandoned all mankind. This is the setting for Angels in America, Part Two: Perestroika, the conclusion to playwright Tony Kushner's Pulitzer- and Tony-winning masterpiece. Here, Kushner creates a cosmic-scale portrait of legendary characters, including ancient rabbis, blind revolutionaries, imaginary travel agents and, of course, angels, set against a backdrop of old relationships ending while new, unexpected ones begin, amid questions of morality, guilt and forgiveness.

Really enjoyed Tale of Two Cities. 11 year old enjoyed it along with us adults. One suggestion: maybe a little less 'dry ice' in French scenes - we were near the front and found it a bit much. Otherwise, thoroughly enjoyable evening, thank you!

An enjoyable performance. Our seats were excellent; however, as another reviewer mentioned, the dry ice was not at all necessary and caused coughing fits in the audience. Arriving 15-20 minutes before the start of the show should be sufficient. ...continued
Based on the book by Charles Dickens and adapted for the stage by Dwayne Hartford.
Set during the tumult of the French Revolution, A Tale of Two Cities vividly dramatizes the influence of historical and political upheaval on the individual. How does one prioritize loyalty? Is violence ever justified? What are the costs to society of a citizenry divided between rich and poor? Can a single act of honor and love counteract a world filled with hatred? And, in the face of war and terror perpetrated in the name of a broader cause, what is the definition of a life well lived?
Featuring Bill Mootos as Sydney Carton and Jane Staab as the iconic Madame Defarge.
