Angels in America: Part One: Millennium Approaches

by Tony Kushner

In Part I of this two part epic, Prior Walter, a young man living in NYC in 1985, is diagnosed with AIDS. His boyfriend, Louis, struggling to cope with the disease and his own fears, abandons him. Alone, Prior struggles until he’s visited by ancestral ghosts who herald the coming of a fierce angel. At the same time, Joe Pitt, a conservative but closeted Mormon, is offered a high profile job in Washington, D.C., by his mentor, the McCarthyist lawyer Roy Cohn. Joe’s wife Harper, who struggles with her own illness, refuses to move. In the seven-time Tony Award and Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, playwright Tony Kushner explores evolving values in America.

This event is free for WSU Alumni plus 1 Guest.  Tickets are limited. RSVP Required.
