In the operatic tradition of the "pants role" (woman playing man), Angel in Between goes one step further when that man, (an updated "Cherubino" from Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro), longs to dress as a woman. An exploration into the very existence of gender through this woman playing a man who becomes a woman, Angel in Between is a new paradigm in theater.
