Signature Theatre Company has announced the start date for Michael Greif's staging of Tony Kushner's Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes. The production will launch on September 14. Both parts of the play, Millennium Approaches and Perestroika, will alternate in repertory from this first preview.

Kushner's play is set in America in the 1980s against a backdrop of greed, conservatism, sexual politics, and the discovery of AIDS. Casting will be announced at a later date.

Angels is part of the Signature's 2010-2011 Tony Kushner season, which will include two other plays by the award-winning writer.
