"ANGELS IN AMERICA" has a universal sweep and a timelessness.
It reminds us of the costs of greed, ignorance and living an inauthentic life, and underscores the necessity for love and generosity and acceptance.
This Rogue production drives that home with a terrible beauty.

—Arizona Daily Star

Every time I leave the Rogue, I think this is the best production I've ever seen, but indeed this IS the best.

—Pat Hammes, Audience Member

Each of these scenes vibrates with compressed intensity.
There are no flat spots, no filler.
The pace is brisk and the subject matter explosive.

—Chuck Graham, TucsonStage.com

Christopher Johnson is spellbinding in the role of Prior.

—Arizona Daily Star

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play, Kushner's masterpiece is
a rumination on America in the 80s told via the tensions of gay life under the specter of AIDS.
New York Times writer Frank Rich describes it as
"A vast, miraculous play... a searching and radical rethinking of American political drama."

2015 Arizona Daily Star Mac Awards

The Rogue Theatre received
eight nominations and one award in the Arizona Daily Star’s 2015 Mac Awards!
Read all about it here.

The Nominations

Best Play, Drama: Hamlet
“The Rogue Theatre’s sparse Hamlet was riveting and thrilling.”
Best Play, Drama:Waiting for Godot
“We sometimes think Waiting for Godot is a tragedy. Then a comedy. Then tragedy again.
Whatever you classify it, The Rogue Theatre’s production of the Samuel Beckett play teased us and thrilled us.”

Best Comedy: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
“...given all the wit and weight the Tom Stoppard play deserves.”
Best Actor: David Morden in Hamlet
“David Morden’s buffoonish Polonius...provided some much needed laughter.”
Best Actress: Patty Gallagher in The Merchant of Venice
“Patty Gallagher’s turn as Portia... was often transcendent.”
Best Actress: Kathryn Kellner Brown in Hamlet
“majestic and heartbreaking in her role of Gertrude...
The agony and sometimes-clueless side of Hamlet’s mother were palpable in her hands.”

Best Direction, Play: Cynthia Meier for Hamlet
“Cynthia Meier’s fast-moving Hamlet caressed the language and made the complex story clear.”
Best Direction, Play: Cynthia Meier for Waiting for Godot
“Meier also wowed us with her direction of The Rogue’s Waiting for Godot.”

The Winner

Best Actor: Matt Bowdren in Hamlet
“He was haunting and haunted, tender and consumed with revenge.
His Hamlet made us see the Shakespeare play with fresh eyes.”
