Angels in America to be Bosher's final act

Thu 21 Nov 2013 In: New Zealand Daily News

Jarod Rawiri is among the actors who have signed on. Auckland’s Silo Theatre will bring modern classic Angels in America back to the stage in 2014, a demanding production which will be the final curtain call for founding artistic director Shane Bosher. Rich with themes around HIV/AIDS, religion and sexuality, the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning epic premiered on Broadway twenty years ago. Ten years ago it was turned into a memorable HBO mini-series starring Al Pacino, Meryl Streep and Emma Thompson. In what is described as “an almighty parting shot”, gay Silo stalwart Bosher will direct the play as his final act. It will run from 21 March to 13 April at Q Theatre, performed in two parts. There will also be six back-to-back performances of both parts over three weekends. Among the actors who have signed on are Mia Blake, Alison Bruce and Jarod Rawiri. Next year Silo will also bring back Brel for just one night in March, a new Thomas Sainsbury play Sunday Roast, a Hitchcock-inspired edgy drama Belleville and improv-feat The Blind Date Project.
