"ANGELS IN AMERICA has proved to be a watershed drama, the most lyrical and ambitious augury of an era since Tennessee Williams's The Glass Menagerie." John Lahr, The New Yorker "The most influential American play of the last two decades." Patrick Healy, The New York Times "Daring and dazzling! The most ambitious American play of our time: an epic that ranges from earth to heaven; focuses on politics, sex and religion; transports us to Washington, the Kremlin, the South Bronx, Salt Lake City and Antarctica; deals with Jews, Mormons, WASPs, blacks; switches between realism and fantasy, from the tragedy of AIDS to the camp comedy of drag queens to the death or at least absconding of God." Jack Kroll, Newsweek "The greatest American play of the waning years of the twentieth century." Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
America in the mid-1980s. In the midst of the AIDS crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, New Yorkers grapple with life and death, love and sex, heaven and hell. This edition, published alongside the major revival at the National Theatre in 2017, contains both plays, Part One: Millennium Approaches, and Part Two: Perestroika.
"Angels in America" is divided into two comedies: "He approaches the Millennium" and "Perestroika," set in New York in the mid-eighties and bears the subtitle of "Gay Fantasia on National Themes." Mette in scena un gruppetto di "diversi": ebrei, mormoni, gay, farmacodipendenti nell'America sconvolta dall'Aids, malattia che infatti colpisce due dei protagonisti, e della quale la narrazione segue il decorso in un clima di dibattito politico, ma anche di surreale inventiva. It features a bunch of "different": Jews, Mormons, gays, drug clinics in America devastated by AIDS, a disease that it affects two of the protagonists, and of which the narrative follows the course in a climate of political debate, but also surreal inventiveness. Una delle vittime è un personaggio storico: Roy Cohn, principe del foro e un tempo segretario del senatore McCarthy, visto qui come genio del male, razzista e segretamente omosessuale. One of the victims is a historical character: Roy Cohn, a prince of the forum and a time secretary of Senator McCarthy, seen here as a genius of evil, racist and secretly homosexual. Coi vivi circolano liberamente fantasmi del passato, e anche Ethel Rosenberg, martire della caccia alle streghe negli anni Cinquanta, in veste di Erinni, è tra gli angeli che col loro volo spostano questa nuova commedia in dimensioni inattese. Move freely with the living ghosts of the past, and also Ethel Rosenberg, martyr of the witch hunt in the Fifties, as the Furies, is among the angels who move with their flight, this new comedy in unexpected dimensions. Il testo è immediatamente divenuto oggetto di scandalo per la polemica contro l'America di Reagan e degli yuppies, per la difesa delle minoranze, ma soprattutto per avere affrontato il problema dell'Aids. The text is immediately become the object of scandal for polemics against the America of Reagan and yuppies, for the defense of minorities, but above all to have addressed the problem of AIDS.
