Angels in America: Part II: Perestroika

by Tony Kushner

Following the events of Part I: Millennium ApproachesPerestroika 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.

This event is includes lunch & show tickets for $30.  Tickets are limited. RSVP Required.
