Angels in America. In two parts that collectively run six hours, Angels in America is a great emotional investment that pays dividends in both entertainment and enlightenment. It evokes Reagan's America as a Hieronymus Bosch hellscape and may be thought of as a thinking man's Star Wars. Dobama has performed a miracle in taming this madcap theatrical dragon. Director Joel Hammer has bypassed efficiency for spit-and-polish inspiration. The dynamic eight-member cast acts out an entire crumbling universe--spectral, human, and angel--before our astounded eyes. The equivalent of a college education in two jam-packed sessions. Through December 20. Reviewed December 3.
