In the mid-1980s, amid the AIDS crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, New Yorkers grapple with life and death, love and sex, heaven and hell in this Pulitzer Prize-winning play.
“Angels in America is a truly American epic created by one of the most gifted storytellers of our age, Tony Kushner. Kushner wrote the script for Stephen Speilberg’s autobiographical film The Fablemans and wrote the book for the most recent film version of West Side Story. Angels covers SO MUCH territory; with honesty, fantasy, impact, and a lot of humor. It is frequently mentioned in the top 10 American plays ever written, and MET is very excited and proud to be bringing this amazing piece to the Frederick stage.” – Tad Janes, Producing Artistic Director
