Praise for the play:
"Angels in America is the broadest, deepest, most searching American play of our time."—Jack Kroll, Newsweek
"A vast, miraculous play . . . provocative, witty and deeply upsetting . . . a searching and radical rethinking of Ameri-can political drama."—Frank Rich, The New York Times
"Something rare, dangerous and harrowing…a roman candle hurled into a drawing room . . . "—Nicholas de Jongh, London Evening Standard
"Playful and profound, extravagantly theatrical and deeply spiritual, witty, and compassionate, furious and incredibly smart . . . It’s impossible to imagine anyone captivated by the beginning not wanting—needing—to go back for the end."—Linda Winer, Newsday
"An enormously impressive work of the imagination and intellect, a towering example of what theatre stretched to its full potential can achieve."—Clifford A. Ridley, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Perestroika is a masterpiece."—John Lahr, New Yorker

Review: Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches (Angels in America #1)User Review - Angela Kershner - Goodreads
Having only read part one, with no intention of reading part two, yeah... not very good. It was required for school, anyway, so I don't mind not liking it. Read full review
Review: Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches (Angels in America #1)User Review - Lynsey - Goodreads
This book is so sad. Almost unbearably sad. But it is human. This is a fantastic work that shows people and how they differ; people and how they affect one another. It's nearly perfect... in a heart wrenching kind of way. Read full review
