Angels in Roseville

It’s not an exaggeration to call Tony Kushner’s Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes the best American play of our generation. Not only did it win back-to-back Pulitzer Prizes and Tony Awards, it examines the AIDS crisis in the Reagan years through the lens of U.S. history—and the mythos of that most American of religions, Mormonism. Now Roseville City Production Dynamics is taking on both halves of this massive work. Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches opened last weekend and plays through Saturday, July 10. On Sunday, July 11, the troupe—same cast—will open Angels in America: Part Two: Perestroika. This is an exciting opportunity to see the whole shebang, a poetic examination of love, death and America. Performances are at 8 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays at the Royer Arts Center in Royer Park, 190 Park Drive in Roseville. Tickets are an extremely reasonable $7, and reservations can be made by calling (916) 538-8013 or emailing <script type="text/javascript" language="javascript">{ document.write(String.fromCharCode(60,97,32,104,114,101,102,61,34,109,97,105,108,116,111,58,100,105,114,101,99,116,100,97,118,105,100,98,108,117,101,64,103,109,97,105,108,46,99,111,109,34,62,100,105,114,101,99,116,100,97,118,105,100,98,108,117,101,64,103,109,97,105,108,46,99,111,109,60,47,97,62)) } </script>.
