    The Indiana University Southeast theater department explores the AIDS epidemic and its impact on the gay community in Angels in America Part 1: Millennium Approaches, which is now running.

    Angels in America will take place April 9, 10 and 11 at 8 p.m. each night. Matinees are to go on April 11 and 12 at 2:30 p.m. each day. All performances are to happen in the Robinson Theater inside IUS's Ogle Center, located on campus at 4201 Grant Line Road in New Albany, IN.

    Tickets for each show are $12 for adults, $9 for seniors and $6 for students. All tickets can be purchased at the door, by calling 812-941-2526 or going to the Ogle Center website. 

    Angels in America Part 1: Millennium Approaches looks at the gay community, coming out of the closet, and how the AIDS epidemic affected, and still affects, the community. The drama focuses on two couples: the HIV-infected Prior and his lover, Louis, and the couple Joe, a closeted gay Mormon, and his wife Harper, who is addicted to Valium. The four deal with their situations however they can. Some seek advice from people in their past and some wind up seeing visions both of ancestors and angels. 

    Jim Hesselman directed Angels in America, which Tony Kushner created. Kushner earned a Pulitzer Prize for the drama.

    More information on the show can be found at the IUS theater department website.
