“Glorious. A monumental, subversive, altogether remarkable masterwork…Details of specific catastrophes may have changed since this Reagan-era AIDS epic won the Pulitzer and the Tony, but the real cosmic and human obsessions—power, religion, sex, responsibility, the future of the world—are as perilous, yet as falling-down funny, as ever.” – Linda Winer, Newsday

“A vast, miraculous play… provocative, witty and deeply upsetting… a searching and radical rethinking of American political drama.” – Frank Rich, New York Times

“A victory for theatre, for the transforming power of the imagination to turn devastation into beauty.”  – John Lahr, New Yorker

“An enormously impressive work of the imagination and intellect, a towering example of what theatre stretched to its full potential can achieve.”Philadelphia Inquirer

“Angels in America is the finest drama of our time, speaking to us of an entire era of life and death as no other play within memory. It ranks as nothing less than one of the greatest plays of the twentieth century.” – John Heilpern, New York Observer

“Some playwrights want to change the world. Some want to revolutionize theatre. Tony Kushner is that rarity of rarities: a writer who has the promise to do both.”  – New York Times

This new edition of Tony Kushner’s masterpiece is published with the author’s recent changes and a new introduction in celebration of the twentieth anniversary of its original production. One of the most honoured American plays in history, Angels in America was awarded two Tony Awards for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. It was made into an Emmy Award-winning HBO film directed by Mike Nichols. This two-part epic, subtitled “A Gay Fantasia on National Themes,” has received hundreds of performances worldwide in more than twenty-six languages.
