Praise for the play:

"Angels in America is the broadest, deepest, most searching American play of our time."--Jack Kroll, "Newsweek"

"A vast, miraculous play . . . provocative, witty and deeply upsetting . . . a searching and radical rethinking of Ameri-can political drama."--Frank Rich, "The New York Times"

"Something rare, dangerous and harrowing...a roman candle hurled into a drawing room . . . "--Nicholas de Jongh, "London Evening Standard"

"Playful and profound, extravagantly theatrical and deeply spiritual, witty, and compassionate, furious and incredibly smart . . . It's impossible to imagine anyone captivated by the beginning not wanting--needing--to go back for the end."--Linda Winer, "Newsday"

"An enormously impressive work of the imagination and intellect, a towering example of what theatre stretched to its full potential can achieve."--Clifford A. Ridley, "Philadelphia Inquirer"

"Perestroika is a masterpiece."--John Lahr, "New Yorker"
