Daring and dazzling! The most ambitious American play of our time: an epic that ranges from earth to heaven; focuses on politics, sex and religion; transports us to Washington, the Kremlin, the South Bronx, Salt Lake City and Antarctica; deals with Jews, Mormons, WASPs, blacks; switches between realism and fantasy, from the tragedy of AIDS to the camp comedy of drag queens to the death or at least the absconding of God.
At the height of the AIDS epidemic in mid 1980s New York, a group of charismatic, but lost characters tackle politics, sex, religion, and a way forward in Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize winning two-part epic that has been called one of the most important plays of the last 30 years. After experiencing Part One: Millennium Approaches this season, you’ll be counting the days before returning to next season’s opener, Part Two: Perestroika. This moving, funny, gut-wrenching masterpiece will fill you with emotional highs and lows, draw you in and trap you in its web of global and timeless issues.
