'Angels in America' Revival Set for Off-B'way

NEW YORK – "Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes" will fly again in New York — off-Broadway.

The mammoth, two-part drama by Tony Kushner will be presented by the Signature Theatre Company during its 2010-2011 season as part of a yearlong celebration of the playwright.

Artistic director James Houghton says the play's two parts, "Millennium Approaches" and "Perestroika" will be performed in rep.

No casting was announced, but the play, a tale of AIDs in the Age of Reagan, will be directed by Michael Greif, who also directed "Rent" and "Next to Normal."

The Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning "Angels" was first seen on Broadway in 1993 and later was made into an HBO film starring Al Pacino and Meryl Streep.
