Tony Kushner's Angels in America II: Perestroikal continues the story of Prior Walter, newly HIV/AIDS symptomatic, had been deserted by his boyfriend, Louis, and visited by an Angel crashing through his ceiling. Louis, meanwhile, was punishing himself by sleeping with Joe Pitt, a closeted Mormon Republican lawyer with a Valium-addicted wife in psychotic limbo and a dour mother on her way from Salt Lake City.

Joe's mentor, the infamous Roy Cohn, was succumbing to an AIDS-related death attended by his nurse (and Prior's friend) Belize and the ghost of Ethel Rosenberg.

Fortunately, the Pitt production has Robert C.T. Steele in the director's chair. Credit him with bringing more lucidity to Part 2 than I've ever seen in any other

A deeply moving Elena Alexandratos and a magnificent Doug Mertz return from the Part 1 production to complement this all-new company of student actors --
all of whom get a big hand from me for their rock-solid commitment to this extraordinary play.
