Body Positive 'Angels' Benefits On Saturday, March 25, at 8:00 p.m., the AIDS service organization Body Positive will sponsor a special benefit performance of Tony Kushner's "Angels in America" on the Alley Theatre's Neuhaus Arena Stage. A reception with the cast and director of the production will he held immediately following the performance. Tickets are $50, and may be purchased by calling (713) 524-2374. "In Angels in America. Tony Kushner has created an astonishing work of art that examines what it is like to live with AIDS. Even though it tackles such a serious subject, the play somehow manages to be both very funny and profoundly moving," commented Body Positive Board President Robert Berry. "The Alley Theatre's run of 'Angels In America' is almost completely sold out. and Body Positive considers itself very fortunate to be able to sponsor a special performance. "Angels In America" traces the relationships of two New York couples as they struggle to understand each other and themselves. Louis Ironson is a gay. Jewish work processor living in Manhattan with his lover Prior Walter, who has just been diagnosed with AIDS. Joe Pitt is an ambitious lawyer with a bright future m the Reajjan ■i.imimsii:!!...*.! He finds ii increasingly difficult to cope with his mentally unstable wife Harper, who is addicted to sedatives and spends her days cloistered away in the confines of their Brooklyn apartment. Into this mix playwright Kushner sprinkles a host or --nlikely characters: Roy Cohn. an angel. Morton pioneers from the nineteenth century, the oldest living member of Russia's communist party, and the ghost of Ethel Rosenberg. "Angels in America" is unique in several respects. First, the play put two subjects that had previously been considered "untouchable'' and unprofitable—the experience of gays and lesbians during the enormously conservative years of the Reagan 80s and the struggle of individuals living with AIDS on a Broadway stage and into the center of "mainstream" Body Positive will also sponsor a special benefit performance of the second part of "Angels In America," "Perestroika," on Saturday, April 15. at 8:00 p.m. Tickets are $50. Interested individuals may call Scott Clark at Body Positive at (713) 524-2374 to be put on a waiting list for tickets to this Performance. Founded in 1988 by six Houstonians concerned about the AIDS crisis, Body Positive's mission is to encourage individuals at risk of HIV infection to get tested; and to help those .nfected with HIV to actively manage their lives and health from maximum quality of life. Its objectives include providing emotional support, education, and socialization opportunities to affected individuals.
