About The Production

Millennium Approaches, is the first part of Tony Kushner’s epic Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes.  The play is set in New York City during the mid-80’s and introduces the story of a gay man who abandons his partner when he contracts the AIDS virus, a pill-popping Mormon housewife and her closeted husband who has connections with the infamous McCarthy-ite lawyer Roy Cohn.  Other characters include a former drag queen turned nurse, a philosophizing Rabbi, and an Angel straight out of a Steven Spielberg movie.

Angels in America: Millennium Approaches opens at PM&L on Friday, May 8th, and will run Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays until May 24th.  Rehearsals will typically be Mondays-Thursdays, beginning at 7 pm.  There will also be a reading of Angels in America: Perestroika on Sunday, May 31st for Millennium Approaches ticket holders.
