Angels in America This Weekend

This weekend Angels in America opens at the Moraine Valley Fine & Performing Arts Center, twenty years after Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning drama debuted on Broadway. The play, which runs this weekend and next, is set in the 1980s, against a backdrop of “greed, conservatism, sexual politics, religious identity and the discovery of an awful new disease: AIDS.” The playwright reflects on the era in this NPR interview. You can also read the play and related essays, both of which are available at the Library.
