A groundbreaking play about the early days of the AIDS crisis returns to the Seattle stage, 20 years after its stunning premiere here. "Angels in America" takes us inside the lives of those affected by HIV in New York City in the 1980s. The play spotlights a unique partnership between Intiman Theatre and the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, aimed at re-energizing the conversation about the epidemic, and the continuing search for a vaccine. Andrew Russell, Director of "Angels in America," and Dr. Jim Kublin, Executive Director of the HIV Vaccine Trials Network, based at Fred Hutch both joined host Margaret Larson on the show today with more on "The Angel Project."

"Angels in America: Parts 1 and 2" are playing now through September 21st at the Cornish Playhouse at Seattle Center, formerly the Intiman. You can purchase a Festival Pass to see both Part 1 & Part 2 at a discount, plus enjoy extra perks for other Angels Projects events and a discount on lobby concessions. Or experience the epic two-part masterpiece in one day with a Marathon Pass, or buy Single Tickets to the two-part show.
