Angels in America 
This 1993 Pulitzer Prize-winning play was written by Tony Kushner and set in New York City in 1985. The drama takes you on an unforgettable journey, touching on AIDS, sexuality, and religion. Divided into two parts, the first is titled "Millennium Approaches" and was first performed in 1991 by the Eureka Theatre Company in San Francisco. The second part, "Perestroika," was first produced in 1992, by the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles. Interweaving fictional characters with real ones — like self-loathing attorney Roy Cohn — the play was a revelation, winning Tonys and inspiring the 2014 HBO film.
