Angels in America: Millennium Approaches

A play by Tony Kushner

Angels in America, the Pulitzer Prize winning play written by Tony Kushner

Nepal premiere in English with two professional guest artists from America and Nepali professional, community, and college/university actors. Followed by animated audience talkbacks, included in the Fulbright Commission USES-Nepal 50th Anniversary Celebrations, with the U.S. Embassy in Nepal buying out a house.

The play was performed for the first time ever in Nepal, in English, with a mostly Nepali cast.  Merola recently directed Desire Under the Elms at Gurukul Theatre, which drew over 5,000 people in a five week run.

Angels in America is set in the 1980’s when Ronald Reagon was President, and when AIDS/HIV was ravaging the gay community in the United States.  It was at the time being performed on Broadway to sold-out audiences.
