A rich, rending look at faith, doubt, and the AIDS crisis in America. ( )

One of the greatest plays in the American cannon. ( )

Yesterday morning, after mindlessly scrolling through all of my social media feeds for hundredth time, I felt disgusted with myself and the world but mostly myself. I needed a devotional. Church. (It was Sunday morning.) But nothing religious. I gave that up long ago. I went to my bookshelf and straight to the plays. Angels caught my eye. I hadn't read it since the 90s. My copy of Millennium opened to Act 2, and I just started reading. The house was quiet; only the critters and I were up yet. I read to then end of Act 2, then went back to beginning, read through the end of Part 1 and onto Perestroika. My devotional turned into an all-day revival meeting. Just what my sorry soul needed.

"Greetings, Prophet!
The Great Work Begins:
The Messenger has arrived."
- Millennium Approaches, Act Three, Scene Seven

An extremely engaging and personal read. I was very impressed with what Kushner had to offer as a playwright and that he went the extra mile in this work. Not perfect, in my opinion, but an incredibly well done job. ( )
