Event description

Description

Angels in America, the Broadway phenomenon that won the Pulitzer Prize, earned multiple Tony Awards, and gave voice to gay culture during the height of the AIDS crisis, celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary this year. To mark the occasion, writers Isaac Butler and Dan Kois have compiled an enthralling narrative of the play’s beginnings and legacy, featuring the voices of playwright Tony Kushner, actors (such as Meryl Streep and Al Pacino from the HBO adaptation), directors, producers, and others. The authors are joined by actors from the original Broadway run Stephen Spinella, Kathleen Chalfant, and Ellen McLaughlin for a discussion of the book, as well as a spirited reading of related interviews featuring an all-star cast of actors and writers.
