Videoclip von Angels in America

Einen Tag vor der Opening Night am 28. Oktober 2010 hat das Signature Theater einen wunderschönen Videoclip von der Angels of America Aufführung auf vimeo veröffentlicht, den sich Webseiten-Betreiben in ihre Blogs und Seiten einbinden können. Das lasse ich mir doch nicht entgehen :-) Die Aufnahme ist etwa 2 Minuten lang und ohne Sprache, dafür aber komplett mit Musik unterlegt. Das Ergebnis ist mitreissend, in sich sehr stimmig und macht neugierig, ohne zuviel zu spoilern. Und natürlich ist auch Zachary Quinto als Louis zu sehen :-)

Angels in America News

Am 03. Juli 2010 erschien ein Artikel in der Onlineausgabe der New York Times und berichtete, daß Zachary Quinto für die Rolle des als zynisch bezeichneten Louis Ironson in Angels of America gecastet wurde. Es stand damals noch nicht fest wer die Rolle von Prior Walter spielt, einen aidskranke Freund von Louis, der von diesem wegen seiner gesundheitlichen Probleme verlassen wird. Die Company Leiter verhandeln derzeit mit Christian Borle, eine Entscheidung ist aber wohl noch nicht gefallen. Der Part des Belize, einer Krankenschwester und ehemaligen Drag Queen, scheint mit dem Schauspieler und Sänger Billy Porter besetzt worden zu sein. Regie wird Michael Greif führen. Allerdings gibt es noch keinen offiziellen Kommentar der Angels of America Produzenten zur Besetzung.

Das Stück sollte ursprünglich vom 14. September bis 19. Dezember von der Signature Theatre Company am Broadway aufgeführt werden, Tickets gibts ab 03. August 2010 zu kaufen. Mittlerweile wurde es aufgrund der großen Resonanz beim Vorverkauf 2x verlängert und läuft nun bis zum 20. Februar 2011. Ein ältere Artikel "Angels in America" to Land Off Broadway Next Year, ebenfalls aus der New York Times, verriet uns, daß das Theater 160 Sitze hat und ein Ticket 20 US$ kostet.

Casting Disclosed for Angels in America

Initial casting for the September revival of Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning “Angels in America” includes Zachary Quinto and Billy Porter, according to two theater executives involved with the Signature Theater Company production.
Mr. Quinto, who played Spock in the 2009 film “Star Trek” and Sylar on the television series “Heroes,” will portray the sarcastic Louis Ironson. Mr. Porter, an actor and singer who has performed in Lincoln Center’s American Songbook series, has been cast as Belize, the nurse and former drag queen.
In the 1993 Broadway production of the two-part “Angels,” about politics, AIDS and love, Joe Mantello played Louis and Jeffrey Wright played Belize. Mr. Mantello was nominated for a Tony Award for best featured actor in a play for the role in Part 1 of “Angels,” “Millennium Approaches.” Mr. Wright won the Tony for best featured actor in a play for his work in Part 2, “Perestroika.”
The two theater executives, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak for Signature, said on Thursday that the company was in talks with the actor Christian Borle to play Prior Walter, a gay man with AIDS, whose health causes his boyfriend, Louis, to leave him. Mr. Borle was nominated for a Tony in 2007 for best featured actor in a musical when he played the teaching assistant Emmett in “Legally Blonde.”
A spokesman for the “Angels” production had no comment on the casting.
The Off Broadway revival will be directed by Michael Greif (“Next to Normal,” “Rent”), and will mark the first time that “Angels” has been produced on a major New York stage since the Broadway production of Parts 1 and 2 closed in December 1994.
The two parts of “Angels” will run in repertory at Signature from Sept. 14 through Dec. 19.

Angels in America to Land Off Broadway Next Year

September 1, 2009,

As part of its 2010-11 season dedicated to the work of Tony Kushner, Signature Theater Company will mount the first New York revival of his Pulitzer- and Tony-winning “Angels in America” since it closed on Broadway in 1994, Signature’s artistic director, James Houghton, said on Tuesday.
The production, to be directed by Michael Greif (“Next to Normal,” “Rent”), will open at Signature’s 160-seat theater in the late fall or early winter of 2010, Mr. Houghton said, and is expected to run for about four months. The two plays that make up “Angels” — “Part 1: Millennium Approaches” and “Part 2: Perestroika” — will run in repertory. The theater also plans to have performance days where the plays (each three and a half hours long) are presented back to back.
Set in 1985 and 1986 against the backdrop of the AIDS epidemic and the Reagan administration, “Angels” interweaves the stories of a gay couple grappling with AIDS; a closeted Mormon lawyer and his drug-addicted wife; and several other, often fantastical characters, from the real-life right-wing lawyer Roy Cohn to a steel-winged angel who memorably crashes through a ceiling at the end of “Millennium Approaches.”
“Millennium Approaches” opened on Broadway in May 1993, and “Perestroika” that November. The two-part “Angels” was widely praised as a landmark work of theater as well as a significant meditation on gay life, politics and religion in America. Both parts won Tony Awards for best play — Part 1 in 1993 and Part 2 in 1994 — and “Millennium Approaches” won the Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1993. “Angels” has had scores of productions in the United States and overseas, and is particularly popular with college theater groups.
Mr. Houghton said he and Mr. Kushner agreed very quickly that the timing was ripe to include an “Angels” revival in the coming season devoted to Kushner plays. (Signature features work by a single playwright over a full season.)
“Among other things, the play is a rumination on how we confront change, the challenge of change and our choices around the themes of changes — both the courageous choices we make and the less so,” Mr. Houghton said.
No casting decisions have been made at this point, and Mr. Houghton said that the creative team was in the early stages of conceptualizing how an epic like “Angels” might work for Signature’s intimate Off Broadway space on West 42nd Street. Asked if the angel would still crash onto the stage at the end of “Millennium Approaches” — a moment that prompts a character to remark, “Very Steven Spielberg” — Mr. Houghton said, “We don’t know yet how we’re solving that particular challenge.”
Mr. Kushner said in a statement that Signature was “the perfect space” for both the epic and intimate qualities of “Angels.” He is likely to attend rehearsals, Mr. Houghton said, but has no plans to do any new writing on the work.
The Kushner season will include two other plays, which Mr. Houghton was not ready to announce. He said that he and Mr. Kushner were discussing the possibility of Mr. Kushner’s writing a new play — Signature seasons often include a new work by the playwright being showcased — but nothing had been decided.
Mr. Kushner’s most recent new work, “The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism With a Key to the Scriptures,” which ran at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis in the spring, is being eyed by producers for a separate run in a New York theater next year.
As part of Signature’s Ticket Initiative, sponsored chiefly by Time Warner, all tickets to “Angels” will be $20.
