Angels in America: Millennium Approaches

Event, Theatre, Garden City Event, Performing Arts Series


Written by Tony Kushner
Direction by Maggie Lally

Set in the New York City of 1985, this winner of the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 1993 Tony Award for Best Play is widely regarded as a modern masterpiece of the American theatre. Join us as the students of the Department of Theatre explore this important work, perfectly captured by Jack Kroll in Newsweek when he said: ”Daring and dazzling! The most ambitious American play of our time: an epic that ranges from earth to heaven; focuses on politics, sex and religion; transports us to Washington, the Kremlin, the South Bronx, Salt Lake City and Antarctica; deals with Jews, Mormons, WASPs, blacks; switches between realism and fantasy, from the tragedy of AIDS to the camp comedy of drag queens to the death or at least the absconding of God.“

Wednesday night’s performance will also include a post-show discussion with the cast and creative team along with a distinguished panel of guests to discuss the current state of AIDS, as well as how race impacts the diagnosis and treatment of AIDS. The panel will be moderated by Elizabeth Cohn, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Center for Health Innovation and will also include the following guests:

  • Marjorie J Hill, Class of ’77 Ph.D. ’81, Chief Executive Officer of the Joseph Addabbo Family Health Center
  • Alan Reiff, Class of ’83, Queens Pride Co-Chair and Worldpride Co-Chair
  • Anthony Santella, Ph.D., Vice Chair of the Nassau and Suffolk Ryan White Part A Planning Council, Assistant Professor of Health Professions at Hofstra University
