The first part of Tony Kushner's epic, set in 1980s New York City, zooms in on the lives of two main couples: Prior Walter is abandoned by his lover, Louis, as he contracts the AIDS virus, while a closeted gay lawyer named Joe Pitt struggles in his marriage to his pill-popping wife, Harper. Their fates intertwine as they explore the questions of love, justice, identity, and change.

Among the twentieth century's defining works of dramatic art, ANGELS IN AMERICA is the most Tony Award-nominated play, breaking records in Broadway's history with 10 Tony Awards including Best Play and Best Revival of a Play. It has also won a Pulitzer Prize for Drama, proving Kushner's work remains as transcendent and as potent and timely in its concerns as when it premiered on Broadway over 25 years ago.
