Review

""Angels in America" has proved to be a watershed drama, the most lyrical and ambitious augury of an era since Tennessee William's "The Glass Menagerie."" -John Lahr, " New Yorker"
"A vast, miraculous play... provocative, witty and deeply upsetting... a searching and radical rethinking of American political drama." -Frank Rich, "New York Times"
"Daring and dazzling! The most ambitious America play of our time: an epic that ranges from earth to heaven; focuses on politics, sex, and religion; transports us to Washington, the Kremlin, the South Bronx, Salt Lake City and Antarctica; deals with Jews, Mormons, WASPs, blacks; switches between realism and fantasy, from the tragedy of AIDS to the camp comedy of drag queens to the death or at least absconding of God..."Angels in America" is the broadest, deepest, most searching American play of our time." - Jack Kroll, "Newsweek"
"Few plays have captured the spirit of an age more powerfully than "Angels in America."..and the passage of time has not clipped "Angels'" wings." -Paul Taylor, "Independent" (London)
"Something rare, dangerous, and harrowing...a roman candle hurled into a drawing room." -Nicholas de Jongh, "London Evening Standard"
""Angels" breaks all the rules to achieve the astonishing integrity of its vision...It is a play that has remained utterly of-the-moment." -Jeremy Gerard, "Bloomberg"
"The most influential American play of the last two decades." -Patrick Healy, "New York Times"
"That "Angels "came so close to the burning heart of the Zeitgeist left Kushner fearing he would never get there again. But in fact he has been there so often that he seems to have passed right through it..."Angels," so much a cry in the dark about AIDS when it was written, seems now to be as much about the Earth's potentially fatal illness as gay men's." -Jesse Green, "New York"
"The greatest American play of the waning years of the twentieth century." -Chris Jones, "Chicago Tribune"
