Angels In America: Millennium Approaches





"The broadest, deepest, most searching American play of our time." -Newsweek




 The New Yorker calls ANGELS IN AMERICA the most important play of the last decade. Newsweek calls it "the broadest, deepest, most searching American play of our time." Set in 1980’s New York City, this Pulitzer Prize-winning play explores the Reagan era (set in 1985 and 1986), American history, the aids epidemic, sexuality, love, death, religion, and the meaning of community. It's the kind of theatre that takes you through a vast array of emotions and leaves you changed. The University Theatre will present only Part One: Millennium Approaches.
