Angels in America - Part I: Millennium Approaches

Angels in America: Part Two – Perestroika

April 26 to May 12, 2019

Hilberry Theatre


Following the events of Part I: Millennium Approaches, Perestroika continues the complex and fantastical examination of homosexuality, race, and AIDS in 1980s America. Fighting illness and losing hope, Prior Walter is hesitant to become the prophet as demanded by the Angel. Roy Cohn is hospitalized, diagnosed with “liver cancer,” and under the care of Belize. Harper has disappeared and Joe’s mother has arrived to try to put her family back together. Perestroika is the thrilling conclusion to this epic tale of love, loss, and destiny.

“A vast miraculous play… provocative, witty and deeply upsetting… a searching and radical rethinking of American political drama… ‘Perestroika’ is not only a stunning resolution of the rending human drama of ‘Millennium Approaches,’ but also a true millennial work of art, uplifting, hugely comic and pantheistically religious in a very American style.” — Frank Rich, New York Times
