About Angels in America

One of the most honored plays of all time, Angels in America has won the Pulitzer Prize and numerous Tony Awards. It was recently revived on Broadway in 2018 to rave reviews. Set during the AIDS crisis of the mid-1980s, characters grapple with sickness, death, a pandemic, love, sex, heaven, and hell.

The event is offered in conjunction with our current exhibit: Sewn in Memory: AIDS Quilt Panels from Central Illinois.

Angels in America is the finest drama of our time, speaking to us of an entire era of life and death as no other play within memory. It ranks as nothing less than one of the greatest plays of the twentieth century. New York Observer
