Re: “Angels in America: We can't talk about it, but you can...

Re: the embargo. A number of comments that may or may not help but which come to mind: (1) This show is long (5-1/2 hours over 2 nights), the details (costume changes, set changes, character changes [one actor changes character, age, voice, gender, accent scores of times]) in the thousands, the nuances critical. (2) I have never been disappointed by a performance on the main stage at Playmakers. (3) I count on the Independent's theater reviews to extend my knowledge and enjoyment of the shows I see, not to send me to the shows in the first place. (4) The settling-in phase for a show of this size may be a few performances, but the review lasts forever.

Re: “Angels in America: We can't talk about it, but you can...

I saw parts 1 and 2 last Tuesday and Wednesday and was blown away by the energy, professionalism, acting, staging, the whole theatrical package. This was a 5-star performance at every level. It is also funny, tragic, fast-paced but philosophical, political, theological, medical, historical. At many moments I wanted to cry and walk out, but was really forced to lean in closer to hear the next line, sometimes a comic counterpoint, sometimes a sob. A brilliant, courageous troupe!
