Glenn Close stars in this livestream benefit performance of scenes from Angels in America in support of amfAR’s Fund to Fight COVID-19. This free livestream also features an introduction by Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Tony Kushner that contextualizes COVID-19 in relation to the early days of the AIDS epidemic. This special event marks amfAR’s historic first foray into Broadway. The selected scenes will focus on the experience of living through a plague, reaching through suffering to find hope, and on America striving and failing to reach its ideals of freedom; the event will be followed by a live talkback.
