How Angels in America First Reminded the World That ‘Plays Can Matter’

When Angels in America returns to Broadway on Friday, in a production starring Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane, it will encounter a very different world from the one in which the play debuted around 25 years ago. In the intervening years, HIV and AIDS — the crisis around which so much of the Tony Kushner epic revolves — ceased to be the “death sentence” they once were, and the LGBTQ community won major political victories across the United States and elsewhere. But, as Nathan Lane recently told TIME, that doesn’t mean the play doesn’t still have meaningful lessons for the world of 2018.

That political side has always been part of what makes Angels so significant in the history of American theater. TIME’s William A. Henry III first reviewed the play in late 1992, after it had already debuted in San Francisco, won awards in London and run in Los Angeles all before its 1993 Broadway opening. Though he found some of the acting “bland,” it was clear from his review that there was a reason why Angels was making such waves:

The central visual image of this season’s most eagerly awaited American play is a towering wall, like the facade of some Greek Revival government colossus, with two jagged cracks running from top to bottom. Before a word is spoken, this symbol — with its promise of that facade’s eventually cracking wide open — conveys the aura of physical decay and revolutionary social change that drives Tony Kushner’s 7 1/2-hr. epic about AIDS, gay liberation and the breakdown of the Reagan era’s sanctimonious hypocrisy…

Henry explained that one of the main reasons behind the anticipation for Angels in America was that the play represented a new era in the cultural depiction of gay life: “The author and the delighted spectators reflect an evolution in attitude akin to what happened among blacks and women: one generation sought empathy; the next demanded justice; the generation equivalent to Kushner’s just flat-out asserted equality and spurned any more debate.”

Henry returned to the play about a year later, to cover the Broadway production, now complete with both parts, Millennium Approaches and Perestroika. Its box-office success — despite the early days of the Perestroika production being mired in behind-the-scenes drama ranging from rewrites to what Henry called “stagehand mania” — had defied any fears that the subject matter would only appeal to a niche audience.

And it was, as the piece noted, “hugely significant”:

More than any other work in a theater era of gay self-assertion, it has brought that perspective to the mainstream. Angels was not only the first gay-centered play to win the Pulitzer Prize for drama, it came to the fore just as the argument about gays in the military was putting the gay cause at center stage for the first time in U.S. history. With its aggressive scorn for Ronald Reagan and Republicanism; for Mormons and moralizing; and its demonic view of lawyer-dealmaker Roy Cohn, a gay-bashing closet gay and a top-level G.O.P. influence peddler for more than three decades, Angels disproved truisms about the unmarketability of political drama. Instead it compellingly reasserted the theater’s place in public debate. Hearteningly to theater partisans, Angels generated excitement about a drama comparable to the biggest buzz about musicals. Above all, Angels demonstrated that plays can matter in a pop culture dominated by electronically recorded performances rather than live ones.

That was why, despite the show’s rocky road to the stage and any nitpicking that might be done over the script or acting — Henry, for example, found the second part too quick to declaim its theories about the world, rather than letting the audience arrive at those conclusions — the team behind it only expressed pleasure with the result.

”When we look back on this in five or 10 years, we are not going to remember our exasperation at the script coming in late or how much money it cost,” Rocco Landesman, president of the theater-ownership group financing the 1993 production, told TIME back then. “We are going to remember that we are the producers of Angels in America, the most important play in a generation.”

Of all the gifts Japan has given us — sushi, anime, kaiju monsters — perhaps the greatest one of all is karaoke. Before sing along music videos were invented, drunk amateurs would have to screech songs at their friends a capella. It was basically like living in the world before penicillin was invented.

Anyway we’re playing Singstar Celebration because it’s the last day in the office and we feel like having some fun. So hang out while we butcher songs by your favorite artists like Adele, Britney Spears, One Direction, Nirvana, fun, and more!

FANDOM Plays: Night in the Woods: Weird Autumn Edition

Crimes? Crimes.

It’s time to head back to Possum Springs, the quiet town with a sinister secret. The acclaimed indie darling Night in the Woods just got a free DLC update with new content and additional scenes, so it’s time to see what Mae, Gregg, Bea, Angus and Germ are up to.

What’s Night in the Woods?

College dropout Mae Borowski returns home to the crumbling former mining town of Possum Springs. And there’s something in the woods.

Night in the Woods is an adventure game focused on exploration, story, and character, featuring dozens of characters to meet and lots to do across a lush, vibrant world. After a successful Kickstarter, it was made by Infinite Fall, a teamup of Alec Holowka (Aquaria), Scott Benson (Late Night Work Club), and Bethany Hockenberry.

It’s basically an old school platformer combined with a quarter life crisis tale, with some occultism thrown in for good measure. It’s amazing.

‘Overwatch’s Moira Plays Like Two Heroes in One

We got hands on with Overwatch‘s new hero Moira at Blizzcon. Like many characters in Overwatch, you instantly feel how fun she is to control and within a few minutes you can see yourself having a lot of fun with her.

Naturally, it was everyone’s first chance to play as Moira, so we ended up with about ten Moiras in the game. It’s an odd spectacle, two teams of Moiras constantly draining each other and healing each other.

But eventually people got curious about how other heroes stack up against the new geneticist.

That was good to see, because it’s clear that Moira might need some protecting. A Reaper that gets right onto her is going to make some short work of her, as we saw in the play session. She can even have a hard time dealing with a Tracer one-on-one, as every time Tracer blinks resets the wind-up on Moira’s drain.

She’s powerful, she has her counters.

It gets the most interesting when Moira comes into a setting with two established teams. As a hero swap, she has the potential to disrupt the norm. A team defending a corner or balcony, hiding behind its shields, will have to solve the problem of Moira when she’s picked.

In that sense, she could be a very good stalemate breaker. The change won’t be instant. The enemy team will still have a fair bit of time to react. But all of a sudden, those orbs are going to go through shields, and there’s a bit more sustain healing on the other side.

In the context of the wider meta, that’s exactly what Moira is doing. Coming into an established setting, and potentially disrupting everything. Could we see less reliance overall on clumping up behind shields in esports? That could make for a more exciting game. Time will tell.
