Uptown Players presents Angels in America, Part Two: Perestroika
As one of the great plays of the 20th century, Angels in America, Perestroika picks up right where Millenium Approaches leaves off, with the epic conclusion of the fate of two couples in which one partner has abandoned the other and God has abandoned Heaven. Perestroika also has plot surprises that were not foreshadowed in Part One.
The award-winning play explores gay culture, race, political injustice, inequality, and the future of America through the lens of the AIDS crisis of the 1980s. Americans – in the face of crumbling structures and systems are still wrestling with how best to navigate the complexities of hope. This Gay Fantasia on National Themes raises the stakes with characters confrontating the real, the ethereal, and themselves, with the conclusion taking place five years after our introduction to these memorable characters.
