Atlantis Theatrical Entertainment Group has officially opened its 20th anniversary season with ANGELS IN AMERICA: MILLENNIUM APPROACHES with some of the most critically acclaimed actors of a generation. A groundbreaking masterpiece for the most phenomenal cast ever assembled, it includes (in alphabetical order): Art Acuńa as Roy Cohn, Pinky Amador as the Angel, Angeli Bayani as Harper Pitt, Topper Fabregas as Prior Walter, Cherie Gil as Hannah Pitt, Nelsito Gomez as Louis Ironson, Andoy Ranay as Belize, and Markki Stroem as Joe Pitt. The entire cast will also be playing multiple roles throughout the show.
The first part of Tony Kushner's epic, set in 1980s New York City, zooms in on the lives of two main couples: Prior Walter is abandoned by his lover, Louis, as he contracts the AIDS virus, while a closeted gay lawyer named Joe Pitt struggles in his marriage to his pill-popping wife, Harper. Their fates intertwine as they explore the questions of love, justice, identity, and change.
Among the twentieth century's defining works of dramatic art, ANGELS IN AMERICA is the most Tony Award-nominated play, breaking records in Broadway's history with 10 Tony Awards including Best Play and Best Revival of a Play. It has also won a Pulitzer Prize for Drama, proving Kushner's work remains as transcendent and as potent and timely in its concerns as when it premiered on Broadway over 25 years ago.
"The great work begins!" ANGELS IN AMERICA runs until April 7, 2019 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza, Makati. For tickets, visit www.ticketworld.com.ph.
