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.

A nice performance of a Shakespeare play I've never seen or read before. It was geared towards a high school class-trip audience (there were two classes there when I attended; there was a discussion with the actors after the play which I didn't stick around for). The actors over-emoted/acted to make sure the audience understood the meaning behind Shakespeare's words. Still, they did a good job. The theater was nice, newly remodeled and very intimate; the actors used the whole space, including the balcony.

Antony and Cleopatra brings us close to great leaders and iconic lovers in the tumult of a changing world. This beautiful and tragic play allows us to experience, in one intimate evening, the heights what we want but cannot have, and take us on a personal journey into greatness, celebrity, sacrifice, love and loss.
