Preview April 25, 2018 Encore Staff

SPRINGFIELD—What A Do Theatre presents Angels in America May 4 through 20.

Set in the 1980s when the AIDS epidemic is escalating, the environment is being destroyed and the political climate is changing, Angels in America is a raw and searing evaluation of the intricacies of the time. Tony Kushner’s masterpiece follows a network of friends, lovers and strangers through their struggle to navigate the world in which they live. Use of supernatural settings and characters help highlight internal conflict within each individual as they make sense of the external hardships of the time. This award-winning play is told with intense, unfiltered honesty that moves audience members. Both intimate and grand, this two-part play is one of the most celebrated of the 20th century.

This production features: Dave Stubbs, Andy Helmboldt, Betsy King, Christian Perez, Sue Kernish, Rudy Gauna, Grace Marengo, Mark Switzer, Ed Kernish and Rachel Markillie. This production is directed by Randy Wolfe.
