"...for the right-wing pundits to bar the front door in outrage against The Reagans while allowing Angels to sneak in the back is further proof they couldnt smell injury if it were a squirting skunk"-Angels on high,by CAROLYN CLAY
Ah, yes....the deification of the homosexual AIDS sufferer. And, they try to tell us that it isn't a "gay disease."

I saw two of these plays in the series at the Kennedy Center a few years back. I walked out of them and got so tired of their many queer shows there that I cancelled the subscription I'd had for years.

"To say they're dysfunctional would be an understatement - but that's what makes us relate to them deeply."
This might be a statement about the author's family, but it's odd how she universalizes it.

Nothing pleases these people more than to degrade people who are trying to live good lives.
I saw a huge two-page ad for this sicko movie in the USA Today newspaper this morning.
The fawning over this perverted lifestyle and its out of control fudge-packin adherents is pathetic and disgusting.
The AIDS plague would end overnight if these perverts would stop doing the sick things they do.
I must say, after reading his plays and seeing one on stage and hearing Kushner give two public addresses, he is very tiresome. He has a rapid-fire manner of talking, linking one phenomenon to another so quickly, that is at first hearing hypnotic and attractive; but after a short while (maybe 30 minutes) one realizes that this man is not a serious person. He engages in the art form of the theatre in order to advance an ideological agenda; but he does not have the intellectual self-discipline to actually learn the facts of the issues. But since he is an artist, he can dismiss any criticism by appealing to the first amendment or to artistic license, as if he can say whatever he wants because, of course, it's just art. Ars Gratia Artis ("Art for the Sake of Art") protects him from the criticism that he really deserves. He wants to affect the social and political realms but does not want to be held accountable in truth to any of his assertions.

Al Pacino as the devil, specifically Reagan crony Roy Cohn;
Could someone explain to me the link between Reagan and Cohn? Reagan was in CA during the early years of his political career, while Cohn spent his life in New York City.

The playwright recently told The New York Times that he's determined to put Bush out in 2004.
Bring it on Mr Kushner! The ability of certain people to blame all their problems on the president, while taking absolutely no personal responsibility for their actions, is astounding.

"while allowing Angels to sneak in the back"
Freudian slip, peewee?

Yuk.. all TV and movies have become is propoganda. Just as Christians were worried about Harry Potter saying the problem was witchcraft .. there is a more insidious message in those movies.

"Wright is the only holdover from the Broadway cast, and he is silky beyond words, a one-time drag queen draped in a regal, compassionate hauteur stitched by Kushner out of language and sangfroid."
Sangfroid? Who talks that way?
This is a gay, sicko play, symptomatic of the larger homosexual problem: they're dieing, and no one cares.
As a lifelong Mormon, I have no doubt that this play is as nasty and inaccurate a caricature of our lives as The Reagans was of Ron and Nancy's real lives.
The commercial says nothing about this being an AIDS propaganda show. Hollywood needs to purge the leftists.
There are gays called bug chasers who intentionally seek out HIV positive sex partners so they can catch AIDS.
And I'm supposed to be moved by this movie?

This was a three bagger.
IOW, "people living with AIDS" are the modern equivalent of saintly hermits in the forest.
More leftist agitprop trying to convince Americans that Reagan was the worst evil ever.
All the libs will rant about how great this is, but guess what, like 10 people will watch it.

Reagan crony Roy Cohn
Back the history truck up here. Cohn was an advisor to McCarthy, not Reagan. Cohn is the reason RFK left McCarthy's staff.

I think it is time to reissue that old movie classic:
