Pros: outstanding cast, brilliant performances, wonderful visuals     Cons: none     The Bottom Line: "the angels they burn inside for us   are we ever   are we ever gonna learn to fly"   ~ DISHWALLA     This was a surreal and visual experience that crossed between the apocalypse and total redemption.

Part One: THE MILLENNIUM APPROACHES  Tony Kushner's ANGELS IN AMERICA created a major sensation when it was produced in the mid 1980s in New York and Los Angeles (and subsequently in theaters across the country). Not only is this a magnificently written drama whose seed lies in the agar plate of America in the time of Reagan, AIDS, post-Vietnam trauma, and general angst, it is presented in a long, two part production that demands much of the audience - not only in physical endurance, but …
