America in the mid-1980s. In the midst of the AIDS crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, New Yorkers grapple with life and death, love and sex, heaven and hell.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and considered to be one of the most important plays of the last hundred years, Tony Kushner's ANGELS IN AMERICA was captured live in performance on the London stage last summer.

Starring ANDREW GARFIELD and NATHAN LANE, ANGELS IN AMERICA is a complex, symbolic look at homosexuality and AIDS in America in the 1980s. Over seven-hours long, this epic event is performed in two parts and is the same production that is currently selling out on Broadway. This new staging is directed by Olivier and Tony award-winning director Marianne Elliott (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse).
Part One: Millennium Approaches has a running time of 3 hours and 30 minutes (including two intermissions) and begins at 12:30pm.

There will be a 75-minute break for dinner from 4:00pm to 5:15pm.

Part Two: Perestroika has a running time of four hours (including two intermissions) and begins at 5:15pm, ending at 9:15pm -- in time to allow Cape patrons to take the 9:30pm ferry from Vineyard Haven to Woods Hole.
