Angels in America, Part Two: Perestroika

After their successful launch of Millennium Approaches, Subversive Theatre continues its foray into Tony Kushner’s Angels in America with Part Two: Perestroika. The second play is a continuation of the story started in the first but can stand on its own. Subversive has staged it with a different director from the first part and with an entirely different cast.

The sense of humor at American Repertory Theater of WNY seems to be decidedly dark. Jesus Hates Me is a comedy by Wayne Lemon that they’re describing as “Jean Paul Sartre’s No Exit hopped up on booze, drugs, sex and a plate of Texas BBQ.”


Jonathan Larson’s Rent has been around for a good long time and has made its way through Shea’s, even with members of the original company.

The pretext of this comedy by Phil Davis Sr. presented by Alemaedae Theater and Xavier Films in cooperation with Road Less Traveled Productions is that superstar Peter Williams was once known as Little Petey, “a sensitive, loving boy who was bullied and ridiculed for being more feminine than the other boys and for his unorthodox fashion sense and style, turning him into an angry and defensive teen.”

Beuth, the piece includes words by numerous advocates of the cause and has been showcased around the country as a vehicle for promoting women’s reproductive rights.
