Orlando director Jeremy Seghers to stage Tony Kushner's 'Angels in America' at Valencia

Orlando-based theatrical boundary-pusher Jeremy Seghers is teaming with Valencia College Theater to stage Tony Kushner's iconic play Angels in America at Valencia College next month.

Playwright Tony Kushner premiered Angels, a multifaceted look at the beginnings of the AIDS epidemic in America, in 1991. The play went on to win a Pulitzer and was adapted into a televised miniseries for HBO in 2003. Angels in America is a two-part play, consisting of Millennium Approaches and Perestroika. The parts were written so that they could be performed separately or together.

Seghers — who last staged U.K. theater sensation The Woman in Black at Timucua — will direct Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches by Tony Kushner for Valencia College Theater from Feb. 18-26. The play will be performed at Valencia College East Campus Performing Arts Center. Tickets go on sale Feb. 4 via Valencia College.
