First staged in the early 1990s, Tony Kushner's epic drama "Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes," was a groundbreaking depiction of what it means to be gay in America--as well as an instant classic. This week, The Crimson interviews the four lead male actors of the current Harvard production--three straight, one gay--about what it means to play a gay man in "Angels in America."
