Angels in America, Part I: Millennium Approaches

View Program


“It is my great pleasure to welcome you back to our Theater after such a long hiatus – the last time we gathered in this space was two years ago, in the fall 2019.

We meet again to witness Tony Kushner’s seminal Angels in America. As it holds a mirror up to 1980s America and the negligence of the Reagan administration towards those affected by the HIV/AIDS pandemic, this award-winning play proves especially relevant now, as the nation grapples with the politics surrounding COVID-19.

This production of Angels in America connects different times and generations in more ways than one. As you will read in the program, our cast and crew consists of a wonderful mixture of students, from seniors to first-years. The artistic team also counts on alumni, staff, and guest artists, but I highlight the collaboration between Faye Price ’77, selected as the 2021 McKnight Distinguished artist Award, and Alice Endo ’22, who designed the set for Angels in America in partial fulfillment for the requirements for Honors in Theater and Dance.

I am grateful for the work of all individuals involved in creating the Theater and Dance Department’s Angels in America and for the joy of live performance.”

Cláudia Tatinge Nascimento, Chair and Professor of Theater and Dance
