About this project

Reviews from Angels in America Part I in March: 

“Powerful stuff” – Jack Garner, Democrat & Chronicle

“Gripping”- Michael Lasser, City Newspaper

The Project:
  • Angels in America Part II by Tony Kushner- an epic play and a marathon performance of both part on September 9!.
  • Presented in the Nextstage at Geva Theatre Center in Rochester, NY in August and September.
  • We are raising money to mount this hugely important and hugely-in-scale production! On a wing and a prayer, we need $3,500 to get us to opening night. 

We have to fly our Angel and that takes a lot of feathers. There are plenty of other costumes too, from the 13th century Prior of Prior to the Angel. We have a tastefully spare stage design, but we still need to find a few things more like an armchair, a hospital bed and...well... there's the Angel. 


Be an Angel- like a Teen Angel or an Archangel and we will lavish you with feather kisses and Angel wishes! With every pledge we move closer to our goal- we will only be funded if 100% is raised in thirty days. Perform your part now and make a pledge. 

Synopsis: ““The Great Work continues…” Angels in America is set in late 1985 and early 1986, as the first wave of the AIDS epidemic in America is escalating and Ronald Reagan has been elected to a second term in the White House. Ranging from earth to heaven, from the political to the intimate to the visionary and supernatural, Angels in America is an epic exploration of love, justice, identity and theology, of the difficulty, terror and necessity of change.
