DETROIT—Wayne State’s Hilberry Theatre offers Tony Kushner’s Angels in America Part 1 from February 8 through 24. Tickets are available online at www.theatreanddanceatwayne.com.

In Part I of this two-part epic, Prior Walter, a young man living in NYC in 1985, is diagnosed with AIDS. His boyfriend, Louis, struggling to cope with the disease and his own fears, abandons him. Alone, Prior struggles until he’s visited by ancestral ghosts who herald the coming of a fierce angel. At the same time, Joe Pitt, a conservative but closeted Mormon, is offered a high profile job in Washington, D.C., by his mentor, the McCarthyist lawyer Roy Cohn. Joe’s wife Harper, who struggles with her own illness, refuses to move.

This production contains simulated sexual activity and full frontal nudity.
