Discussion Group meets every other Wednesday
June 10 – Angels in America, written by Tony Kushner. The free film version of the play from
the National Theatre of London is on YouTube.* (This is the same production on Broadway
last year.) There is also an edited HBO movie-version directed by Mike Nichols on DVD.
The plays are published in two volumes: Millenium Approaching and Perestroika and are
available on Amazon separately or as a set.
In performance, Angels in America: Millenium Approaching and Perestroika lasts 7 hours.
*A note from Daniel R:
Hello Book/Film Discussion enthusiasts,
Just a quick note regarding our June 10 “Angels in America” film.
YouTube apparently had a limited free showing of the complete
National Theatre/Broadway play for FREE for two weeks. That
FREE showing seems to have been removed now.
But, I did find this Asian copy of that free showing, and it is complete.
The difference is that you have to put up with subtitles, but other
than the subtitles, the copy is a duplicate of the previous free offering.
There is a 7-minute introduction to this National Theatre production,
so if you want to skip that and go directly to the play, just move your
slider up 7 minutes.
