Ramp can be a bit steep. Look for on-street if possible.

I was a bit hesitant going to such a large production in such a small space, but it turned out to be irrelevant. The production was wonderful - ingenious use of set and space, and acting was very moving. Really loved the production.

Handful of stellar actors, some scenes were too long. At one point I thought there was a power outage. Only alcoholic beverages available. Enjoyed the use of the set, staff was friendly.

Description

Once again, Theatre Coup d’Etat is rolling up their sleeves and shooting for the heart with Tony Kushner’s award winning saga, Angels in America: Millennium Approaches. Winner of the 1993 Pulitzer for drama, Angels in America is set in the 1980s against a backdrop of conservatism, sexual politics, and the discovery of an epidemic cutting a wide cloth though society. Both a love story and a political drama, centering on a group of inextricably connected people whose relationships are disintegrating as a generation falls prey to a culture of greed. Kushner’s dark, cynical humor captures the fragility of the human condition and his prophetic and sublime words pierce the heart and move you to tears. _Angels in America _ was a turning point in history of classic American Playwright Literature and 20 years later is still considered a profound and moving theatrical event not to be missed.

Director Justin M. Kirkeberg (Candid Theater Co.) will be taking the reigns and heading up a cast of Twin Cities brightest up and coming talent

Believing that Theatre should give back to the community, Theatre Coup d’Etat has teamed up with one of the Twin Cities most prolific charitable organizations, The Aliveness Project, whose mission is “to encourage self-empowerment and provide direct services for persons living with HIV/AIDS. Established in 1985, The Aliveness Project has been a beacon of hope by providing community resources and serving as an active leader in the HIV/AIDS community in the Twin Cities.

Theatre Coup d’Etat is committed to helping change the world by starting with their own community and will be donating 5% of all ticket sales to The Aliveness Project. (www.aliveness.org)
