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)
Angels in America is the broadest, deepest, most searching American play of our time. Jack Kroll Newsweek
A vast, miraculous play... provocative, witty and deeply upsetting... a searching and radical rethinking of American political drama. Frank Rich
