I was recently given the opportunity to attend a preview performance of The Signature Theater’s Angels in America. The Pulitzer Prize winning play is just as relevant now as it was in 1986 when it was written, and of course I left the theater crying and swearing to become a better person and love my fellow man.
There is no way to summarize this show, but it’s mostly about love and politics and religion and discrimination and happiness and pretty much every important issue that exists in the world. The Signature Theater’s performance features some serious stars, but I’ll admit that I was most smitten by Zachary Quinto (SPOCK!) as Louis, who perfectly delivers one of the most difficult theater monologues I’ve ever read/seen in a play.
If you have a chance, you really can’t miss this performance, which is insanely cheap for such a landmark play: $20 per night, and the play is split into 2 3-hour shows. The show officially opened last night, check out their website for tickets and details.
Oh, and if you’re still not convinced- there is full nudity for almost the entire cast.
