See both parts of Tony Kushner's Pulitzer-winning play as part of the 2014 Intiman Theatre Festival. This modern American masterpiece takes a wry look at the AIDS epidemic and the political and social climate of America in the '80s. Millennium Approaches follows the disintegration of two very different but equally troubled young New York couples whose fates become intertwined. Its large and wide-ranging cast of sharply drawn characters includes the notorious, AIDS-stricken lawyer Roy Cohn and the apocalyptic Angel who come together and clash over the personal, the political and the theological. In Angels in America, Part Two: Perestroika, the AIDS epidemic is escalating, the ozone layer is weakening and God has abandoned all mankind. Kushner creates a cosmic-scale portrait of legendary characters including ancient rabbis, blind revolutionaries, imaginary travel agents and, of course, angels. The two parts will be performed in repertory along with a series of staged readings, talkbacks, panel discussions, special events and other additional programming that will contextualize and illuminate the many themes and situations of Angels in America.

This poignant work of art includes 6 vignettes that are fun and thought provoking (some, more so than others). The small venue supported an intimate setting, allowing the audience to feel more involved in the exploration of each story. Highly recommended.
There is nudity in this show, while it is not gratuitous or sexual in nature, Parental Discretion is advised. No one under 18 will be admitted without a parent or guardian.
