This is the first part of a two part examination of the struggles facing all types of Americans, at the height of the AIDS crisis. Although written thirty years ago, ANGELS IN AMERICA is as relevant now to the American identity, as when it was first produced.

In the first part of Tony Kushner’s epic, set in 1980’s New York City, a gay man is abandoned by his lover when he contracts the AIDS virus, and a closeted Mormon lawyer’s marriage to his pill-popping wife stalls. Other characters include the infamous McCarthy-ite lawyer Roy Cohn, Ethel Rosenberg, a former drag queen who works as a nurse, and an angel.
