The world’s a stage!

Angels in America: Millennium Approaches

  • Richmond Triangle Players • 1300 Altamont Avenue
  • April 1st – 25th

Harrowing, uproarious, and magical, Angels in America is a fiercely theatrical modern morality play and a landmark of the American stage. Against a landscape of greed, sexual politics, and the cries of a sweeping AIDS epidemic, a lost America teeters on the tipping point of an unknown future. This story of love, power, and identity follows characters as diverse as a Mormon housewife, an ex-drag queen, and the fiery attorney Roy Cohn. It’s 1985, and an Angel with steel wings is hurtling toward Earth. Angels In America: Millennium Approaches!

Sam and Carol

  • Henley Street Theatre; Gottwald Playhouse @ CenterStage • 600 E. Grace Street
  • April 2nd – 25th

In this world premiere of a new work by renowned Richmond novelist, David L. Robbins, the story is at once personal and universal. Based on his own parents’ lives, the story starts during WWII, ends in modern day Richmond, and is a tour-de-force for two actors playing twenty-nine different roles. Beginning with a Pearl Harbor poker game in which Sam “wins” a Pittsburgh girl he’s never met, the play courses across a half-century of American history and celebrates an extraordinary generation, the challenging times that formed them, the Jewish heritage that sustained them, and the legacies they left behind. We are delighted to announce that Eva DeVirgilis, who starred in Henley Street Theatre’s production of The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe, will be playing the role of Carol. Joining her will be Richmond favorite, Nicklas Aliff as Sam.
