ANGELS in AMERICA parts ONE and TWO coming to The Ringwald

After a highly successful run of Tony Kushner's Angels in America Part One: Millennium Approaches, The Ringwald Theatre will open its 8th Season with both parts of this epic play, Millennium Approaches and Perestroika in repertory.

Opening in February, 2014, the original production of Millennium Approaches was met with rapturous reviews. calls this production, "...stunning...beautiful and intense...". The Detroit Free Press says, "...The Ringwald proves up to the challenge of Angels in America...". calls Angels in America " outstanding piece of Michigan theatre and should definitely not be missed."

And now comes Perestroika! Working from a newly-revised script that includes new material from Kushner, Jamie Warrow assumes directing duties to bring the story to a thrilling conclusion.

Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play and the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, Angels in America is one of the most outstanding plays of the American theater. Prior is a man living with AIDS whose lover Louis has left him and become involved with Joe, an ex-Mormon and political conservative whose wife, Harper, is slowly having a nervous breakdown. These stories are contrasted with that of Roy Cohn (a fictional re-creation of the infamous American conservative ideologue who died of AIDS in 1986) and his attempts to remain in the closet while trying to find some sort of personal salvation in his beliefs.

For Millennium Approaches, Joe Bailey will direct a cast that includes Bailey Boudreau, Meredith Deighton, Brenton Herwat, Chris Jakob, Dennis Kleinsmith, Matthew Turner Shelton, Cara Trautman, and Jamie Warrow.
Jamie Warrow directs Perestroika with the same cast.
