20 years after it was written, and 10 years after its last production in Washington, Forum Theatre is bringing back this ground-breaking, still strikingly relevant play. With Angels, Forum also focuses on raising awareness of the still-critical epidemic of HIV/AIDS in the DC community.

Come have cocktails and hors d’oeuvres with the cast and the directors, Michael Dove and Jeremy Skidmore.  Be a part of this historic production from the very beginning by lending your support!

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award, Angels in America is considered the most important American play of the past 25 years. Both parts–Millennium Approaches and Perestroika–will be performed in repertory this fall as part of Forum’s new residency at Round House Silver Spring. Profoundly moving, funny, political, and imaginative, Angels in America follows intertwined characters through New York, DC, the Kremlin, Salt Lake City, Antarctica, and Heaven. Fantasy and reality overflow from the American melting pot in a powerful exploration of politics, religion, and sex.

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