"This disease will be the end of many of us, but not nearly all, and the dead will be commemorated and will struggle on with the living, and we are not going away. We won't die secret deaths anymore. The world only spins forward. We will be citizens. The time has come. Bye now. You are fabulous creatures, each and every one." – Prior Walter, Angels in America Part Two: Perestroika
Following its successful run of Angels in America Part One: Millennium Approaches, Salt Lake Acting Company will present the conclusion of Tony Kushner’s epic as a reading. Angels in America Part Two: Perestroika directed by Keven Myhre and read by the same cast as Millennium Approaches will run November 4 – 7, 2010.
The second half of Kushner's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama follows the characters introduced in Millennium Approaches into the 1990s as they continue to struggle with the ravages of AIDS. While still exploring the themes of sexuality, love, and death from the first part, Perestroika also examines redemption and self-empowerment.
The cast includes Alexis Baigue, Alexander Bala, Colleen Baum, Lucas Bybee, Sean J.
Carter, Charles Lynn Frost, Nell Gwynn, and Christy Summerhays.
Angels in America debuted on Broadway
Millennium Approaches being performed in May and Perestroika joining it in repertory
in November. Both Millennium Approaches and Perestroika were awarded the Tony
back to back Drama Desk Awards
Recommended for mature audiences.
