ASHEVILLE — Tony Kushner’s Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play, “Angels in America: Millennium Approaches,” has taken to the high country.

Performed by N.C. Stage Company at 15 Stage Ln., through Nov. 7, this often controversial presentation has been heralded as one of the most provocative productions of its time.

This piece is co-produced by Posana Cafe and Western North Carolina AIDS Project.

Mountain Xpress reported that the company’s cofounder and producing director, Angie Flynn-McIver, said, “Most of this play [involves] the most intimate scenes you can imagine between two people, and that’s what we do incredibly well.”

Across the nation theaters are revisiting this script during its 20th anniversary. Flynn-McIver continued, “We have been speaking of doing it for years and it just sort of started to feel that this was the time to do it.”

Tickets range from $16-$28, $10/students. For more information, visit
