Second Coming

With divine performances and kooky cosmology, the second part of Angels in America descends on the Pillsbury House Theatre

This is also a more hopeful play than the first one, and its main theme is forgiveness, particularly asking how it is possible to forgive the unforgivable. As directed by Noël Raymond, this is sometimes quite moving. Kushner's script, after all, shows us the ghost of Ethel Rosenberg saying the Kaddish over the dead body of Roy Cohn, the man who caused her horrific death, and the staging is beautiful and somber. If this is not what forgiveness looks like, then what does it look like?
