Angels in America

Angels in America

‘Angels in America’ is one of the most iconic pieces of literature in the HIV/AIDS era. Many of us might remember the high profile 2003 HBO miniseries featuring Al Pacino, Meryl Streep and Emma Thompson, but ‘Angels’ was initially written for the stage in two parts in 1993 by American playwright Tony Kushner. The play is a complex one; it takes a metaphorical look at the HIV/AIDS epidemic in America in the 1980s and revolves around a group of people in New York City coping and dealing with the situation. Yes, there are angels and ghosts, and multiple storylines with multiple characters whose lives intersect at various points throughout the story. This poignant work has won numerous awards including the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a Tony award for best play. Last year, director Christopher Ling put out part one of the play, ‘Millennium Approaches’. This year, we have both part one and two, ‘Perestroika’, and you can watch either one or both.
