ABOUT THE SHOW:
“The Two-Part Pulitzer And Tony Award Winning Epic Presented in Repertory”
PART ONE Celebrates its 25th Anniversary In 2018
In the first part of Tony Kushner's epic, set in 1980's New York City, a gay man is abandoned by his lover when he contracts the AIDS virus, and a closeted Mormon lawyer's marriage to his pill-popping wife stalls. Other characters include the infamous McCarthy-ite lawyer Roy Cohn, Ethel Rosenberg, a former drag queen who works as a nurse, and… yes… an angel.
PART TWO Celebrates its 25th Anniversary In 2019
In the second part of Tony Kushner's epic, the plague of AIDS worsens, relationships fall apart as new, and unexpected friendships, take form.
Both Are Lakewood Playhouse Premiers
A Note To Our Lakewood Playhouse Patrons Regarding ANGELS IN AMERICA Parts One & Two
ANGELS IN AMERICA is an intimate portrait of the tumultuous AIDS epidemic that ravaged the United States in the nineteen eighties. The story is as real as the crisis itself portraying adult themes and intimate human relationships, which include same-sex couples, who were impacted by this disease. This show is meant for mature audiences as it contains the use of profanity, sexual themes and conversations involving sex, religion, politics, gender and race. This show also includes the use of vibrant theatrical lighting, sound, and technical effects.

A NOTE About THE WEATHER From Managing Artistic Director JOHN MUNN
Thanks to the AMAZING Hard Work by the City of Lakewood, and the Lakewood Towne Center, the Streets of Our City,and a great deal of the parking in the Towne Center, have been cleared!
Most recent WEATHER REPORTS State that there might be a TRACE AMOUNT to LESS THAN ONE INCH of snow this evening if any at all.
As THIS is our ONE, and ONLY, FUNDRAISER of the YEAR, and we feel the latest round of snow is going to be minimal, if any, this evening, we are GOING FORWARD with TONIGHT'S FUN-RAISER as TONIGHT is the ONLY NIGHT that we can hold this Incredible, and important, Event. Our upcoming Calendar is Jam-Packed due to the needs of our massive upcoming production of Both parts of ANGELS IN AMERICA (opening in 11 Days on February 22nd) and we would not have another opportunity before Season Ticket Renewals Begin on March 1st.
