About this event

Tony Kushner's two-part epic Angels in America chronicles the intersecting stories of a diverse group of Americans during the early days of the AIDS epidemic in New York City, Utah and around the country. Considered one of the most important American plays of the last century, Kushner’s drama weaves political, social, religious, cultural, and historical themes for a powerful message of love and hope, as relevant today as it was at the approach of the millennium. Part I opens this summer at the start of Madison’s month of Pride celebrations and is remounted in repertory with a staged reading of Angels in America, Part II: Perestroika as a kickoff to the University Theatre season.

CONTENT ADVISORY: This play contains mature language, racial and ableist slurs, references to explicit sexual situations, and depictions of violence, and of illness and death.

This production is made possible through generous support from the Brittingham Trust and the Anonymous Block Grant.
