REVIEW: ‘Angels in America: Perestroika’ at Round House Theatre and Olney Theatre Center
DC METRO THEATER ARTS• October 2, 2016 • BY DAVID FRISCIC
Prophetic Messages continue in the stunning second part of Tony Kushner’s masterwork, Angels in America Perestroika- now appearing at the Round House Theatre as a joint production of the Round House Theatre and the Olney Theatre Center. This production is directed by Ryan Rilette with dramatic, trenchant, and witty aplomb with a great respect for the text and the emotional, universal appeal of this very subversive yet humanistic play.
Olney Theatre Center is a proud partner of Barrie School.
