For the first time (ever), two American theatrical treasures will be teamed: Angels in America and Our Town will be performed at the Pear in repertory, with the same cast and stage setting. These brilliantly contrasting works embody ideas about our nation at different times in its history. Wilder’s beloved Our Town leads us gently back to a quieter, steadier America. Kushner’s searing Angels in America propels us to a time of upheaval, but also tentative hope. Two iconic plays brought together in a bold and startling way.
