Emily Clarkson

The Department of Theatre in the J. William Fulbright College of Arts and Sciences presents the second part of Tony Kushner's award winning masterpiece, Angels in America, running March 9 to 12. It is directed by second year M.F.A. directing candidate, Jeremiah Albers, and features a combined cast of M.F.A. acting candidates and undergraduate theatre students.

Angels in America: Perestroika continues the journey of the characters from Angels in America: Millennium Approaches, which was presented by the Department of Theatre in October 2016. Moving into the 1990s, the AIDS epidemic worsens, while old relationships crumble and new ones are built. Don't miss the stunning conclusion to this epic saga, which was winner of the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play and the Tony Award for Best Play.
