Summary: The most anticipated new American play of the decade, this brilliant work is an emotional, poetic, political epic in two parts: Millennium Approaches and Perestroika. Spanning the years of the Reagan administration, it weaves the lives of fictional and historical characters into a feverish web of social, political, and sexual revelations.
New York Times
'A searching and radical rethinking of the whole esthetic of American political drama in which far-flun
g hallucinations, explicit sexual encounters and camp humor are given as much weight as erudite ideological argument.' Library Journal:
The same masterful writing that won Kushner the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for Millenneum Approaches (Part 1 of Angels, Theatre Communications Grp., 1993) is carried forward here. Capable of being understood as a self-contained play, Perestroika continues from the final scene of Millenneum, wherein an angel had crashed through the ceiling of young Prior's apartment. One is shocked, moved, touched, and saddened yet ultimately uplifted by this delightful story involving the angel, Prior, and six other mortal characters. Kushner uses his humor and wit to show the harshness, fear, and sadness that surrounds anyone touched by AIDS. Prior's closing statement, spoken to the audience, speaks for this play as well: "This disease will be the end of many of us, but not nearly all, and the dead will be commemorated and will struggle on with the living, and we are not going away. We won't die secret deaths anymore. The world only spins forward. We will be citizens. The time has come. Bye now. You are fabulous creatures, each and every one." Essential for contemporary drama collections.-H. Robert Malinowsky, Univ. of Illinois, Chicago
