WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
One of the most celebrated plays of the 20th century, Tony Kushner's two-part masterpiece carries the audience through an astonishing theatrical landscape, both intimate and epic. In the chaos of the mid-1980s, a web of friends, lovers, and strangers struggle to make sense of the world. The AIDS crisis is escalating. The ozone layer is disappearing. And then a celestial messenger comes crashing through the ceiling — literally. Told with thrilling wit and unflinching honesty, this searing examination of American politics, religion, power, sexuality, and justice is as powerful as ever.
