PLAY: Angels in America: Parts One and Two – Sept. 4 thru Oct. 6 (Tickets Required)
Sep 4 @ 7:00 pm – Oct 6 @ 10:00 pm

Performances on September 4 – October 6, 2019

130 Edgar Road, St. Louis, MO  63119

A towering epic that unveils new depths with each passing year, Tony Kushner’s Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece arrives on The Rep’s stage for the first time. The AIDS epidemic is the flashpoint in Kushner’s swirling tapestry of American culture, myths and spirituality. Navigating this maelstrom are Prior Walter, whose prophetic visions lead him toward an uncertain destiny, Joe Pitt, a devout and painfully closeted Mormon, and Roy Cohn, a lawyer whose AIDS diagnosis forces him to face a lifetime of misdeeds. These twin plays’ vision of a wounded and chaotic nation struggling toward redemption is more urgent than ever.

Featuring Kushner’s revised script that fueled acclaimed revivals on Broadway and London’s West End, The Rep will present both parts of Angels in America in a rotating “rep” schedule throughout the run. That will include special marathon days with both parts performed back-to-back.

For information or to purchase tickets, go to http://www.repstl.org/events/detail/angels-in-america-parts-one-and-two or call the Box Office at (314) 968-4925.

Note from Eric:

I decided on the Field Friend Membership ($25.00 online).  I then called and reserved my Happy Hour ticket.

I attended the Happy Hour on Jan. 31.  Nice location, easy free parking at the back entrance.  The new building attached to the house is something to see.  They had a very nice spread of hors d’oeuvres (hot meatballs, slice salami, vegetable tray, assorted crackers, several dips, delicious deserts) plus wine, beer, soda… Also included was a guided tour of the Field House and full access to the museum.

I can now go to the rest of the Happy Hours for Free (5 more this year).

Join me at the next History Happy Hour in the Field House Museum.  I’ll be in the elegant library with a glass of wine.
