"I remember vividly the first time I saw Angels in America in a church in Chicago for the first time. The way the angel exploded language on a simple ladder. Thank God Tony Kushner writes for the American theater, making us believe again (in the age of instant gratification) in seriousness, endurance, political engagement, and language."
