In an age when "epic" stories are usually reserved for blockbuster franchises, Angels in America proves that some of the most fantastic, most panoramic, most important sagas can still be told live on stage -- no CGI required. Now experience the first part of Tony Kushner's Pulitzer-winning play presented in a staged reading. Part 1: Millennium Approaches follows two very different but equally troubled young New York couples whose fates become intertwined. Sparks fly as the play's large and sharply-drawn cast (which ranges from the diabolical lawyer Roy Cohn to an actual angel) clash over the personal, the political and the theological. Learn More
