When Last We Flew, a promising drama by Harrison David Rivers, centers on Jon-Michael Reese as Paul, a horny African-American teen who obsesses over a stolen copy of Angels in America to escape his Kansas life and the chance that his dad left because he didn’t want a gay son. The ensemble, which includes Christopher Larkin as Paul’s gay pal, is stellar, but the script is too tethered to Tony Kushner’s fantasia for the show to truly take flight.
