Tony Kushner's Angels in America, has won just about every award a play could (including a 1992 Tony and Pulitzer).

Prior Walter, the gay black sheep of a Mayflower family, starts the play with the discovery of his first AIDS-related illness. His boyfriend, Louis Ironson -- much better with benign intellectualism than malignant reality -- sees nothing but the loss ahead and flees ... into the dangerous arms of Joe Pitt, a Mormon lawyer whose vision of what's pure and good does not include his own hidden homosexuality. Sitting on the sidelines watching (and at times suffering from) her husband's struggle, Harper Pitt is driven into the comforting arms of Valium.

The University of Pittsburgh Repertory Theatre presents Millennium Approaches in a production directed by Holly Thuma. (Perestroika opens April 2.) And first,
let me say that this mostly student company deserves a big round of applause for tackling such a mammoth work, and acquitting themselves so handsomely.
