>A new group of angels
January 28, 2011 § Leave a comment
Last night Joseph and I saw Part One of Angels in America at Signature Theater. Although I’ve been told that I saw the play when I was much younger, I only remember the HBO series, which I’ve watched several times. Before last night, I worried that the theater production wouldn’t live up to the series, that my imagination would be unable to accommodate a new cast. I was thrilled with the production. The show benefited from a new interpretation. I feel tremendously lucky to have the opportunity to see Angels in America live, celebrating the twentieth anniversary of Tony Kushner’s classic. Many of the play’s central themes remain relevant today.
