Summary
"Tony Kushner's epic play Angels in America has been one of the most successful theatrical phenomena of recent years, playing to full houses in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, and Frankfurt and touring North America and Asia. In Approaching the Millennium: Essays on Angels in America, prominent critics and theorists analyze diverse aspects of the play, exploring such themes as its treatment of American history and politics, its implication in apocalyptic writing, its thematizing of questions of identity (racial, religious, gender, and sexual), and the contexts of its performance and reception."--Jacket
