Angels in America
A Gay Fantasia on National Themes
by Tony Kushner
London: Nick Hein, 1992
Part 1. Millennium approaches -- Part 2. Perestroika
Angels in American is the recipient of a Pulitzer Prize, two Tony Awards, two Drama Desk Awards, the Evening Standard Award, two Olivier Award Nominations, the New York Critics Circle Award, the Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Award, and the LAMBDA Literary Award for Drama. In late 1998, London's National Theatre selected Angels in America as one of the ten best plays of the 20th Century. It has been adapted to a 6 hour miniseries by HBO.
Kushner's work is broadly appreciated in theatrical circles but is generally condemned by mainstream Latter-day Saints because of its sexual and pornographic content, its simplistic and biased cariacatures of Mormons, and its profane and sensationalistic treatment of things holy to the Latter-day Saint faith.
