Ivo Van Hove’s take on Kushner’s ANGELS IN AMERICA


Ivo Van Hove is one of my favorite theater director of all time.  He always think outside the box and presents his own interpretation of the classics. And, he does not shy away from nudity at all!!! So I’m so looking forward to watch his upcoming masterpiece. 

From the press release:


By Tony Kushner
Toneelgroep Amsterdam
Directed by Ivo van Hove

There are no feathers here. Instead of beating wings, there’s David Bowie’s otherworldly wails. With little more than a stack of vinyl records, a few fluorescent lights, and a saline drip, Dutch visionary Ivo van Hove and Toneelgroep Amsterdam deliver a revelatory take on Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize-winning epic. Encompassing both “Millennium Approaches” and “Perestroika,” this marathon production strips Kushner’s now-iconic characters—Prior Walter and his boyfriend Louis, Reaganite lawyer Roy Cohn, Mormon couple Joe and Harper Pitt—to their essence, boldly reimagining “A Gay Fantasia on National Themes.”

  1. i love Ivo van Hove productions too – his Streetcar at NYTW a number of years ago was briilliant. Just saw his Scenes From a Marriage at NYTW. Excellent acting but unfortunately, no nudity.
