Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches

Sundays, 2 p.m. and Fridays, Saturdays, 7 p.m. Continues through March 3
,

Tony Kushner's monumental drama Angels in America, Part One: Millennium Approaches refracts the early days of the AIDS crisis through the prism of politics, religion, sex, the Red Scare, drugs and Antarctica. All of the characters and places are created by a smallish cast that must play young and old, dying and dead, and fantasy and reality. At the heart of all of this is a series of love stories that smash into the cold philosophy of its 1980s setting. "It's everyone for themselves" is a horrible way to live and a worse way to die. The Washington University Performing Arts Department presents Millennium Approaches at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday (February 22 to March 3) at Washington University's Edison Theatre (6445 Forsyth Boulevard; www.edison.wustl.edu). Tickets are $15 to $20. $15-$20

Transluminate

Sat., Feb. 23, 4:30 & 8 p.m.
,

The impressive growth of the St. Louis theater scene has allowed a greater number and variety of voices to tell their own stories. The Q Collective, a group dedicated to presenting works by and about transgender, agender and genderfluid people, opens its second season with its inaugural Transluminate Festival. Transluminate features five short plays by local playwrights Charlie Meyers, Elon Ptah and J.D. Charles. Charles' "Miss Arkansas" is about a transgender woman entering a beauty pageant, an act that infuriates another competitor. "Homebody," by Ptah, shows how a black trans guy named Malcolm moves from self-loathing to self-love, while Meyers' "Breanna" explores the relationship between Andy and Breanna, two former humans now living in android bodies in a futuristic, post-human society. Transluminate is performed at 7 p.m. Thursday and Friday and at 4:30 and 8 p.m. Saturday (February 21 to 23) at the Chapel (6238 Alexander Drive; theqcollective.theater). Tickets are $10 to $20. $10-$20
