Angels in America, Part I: Millennium Approaches By Tony Kushner

October 11, 12, 18, 19, 25 and 26 at 8pm and October 20 at 3pm

Directed by Bob Pridham

The Pulitzer Prize-winning play by Tony Kushner is set in the 1980s against a backdrop of greed, conservatism, sexual politics, religious identity, and the discovery of AIDS. A love story and political drama, the story centers around a group of separate, but inextricably connected individuals whose relationships are disintegrating as the AIDS crisis starts. Harrowing, uproarious, and magical, Angels in America is a fiercely theatrical modern morality play and a landmark of the American stage.

Directed by Jeffrey Fiorello, Musical Directed by Jack Bender and Choreographed by Megan Ferentinos

The “Greatest Show on Earth” is the setting for this riveting musical, which traces the life and loves of colorful impresario Phineas Taylor Barnum. The production combines elements of traditional musical theater with the spectacle of the circus. The characters include jugglers, trapeze artists and clowns, as well as such real-life personalities as Jenny Lind and General Tom Thumb. The score is a pastiche of toe-tapping marches, ballads and ragtime tunes, including “There’s a Sucker Born Ev’ry Minute” and “Come Follow the Band.”
