From the Street to the Stage New York Celebrates Pride

As one of the cultural capitals of the world, New York City often finds itself at the forefront of historic global change. In June of 1969, the Stonewall Riots of Greenwich Village marked one such pivotal moment, from which the modern LGBT rights movement was born. On June 24, our great city will welcome hundreds of thousands of revelers to its 49th annual Pride Parade, which promises to be the most spectacular yet. If you’ll be joining us for the celebrations and would also like to catch a Broadway show, we highly recommend the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning Angels in America, an epic production that examines the meaning of nationality, spirituality, sexuality, and love amid the AIDS crisis of 1980s New York. When Angels premiered in 1991, it was immediately recognized as a momentous dramatic achievement and is now considered by many to be the most important American play of the late 20th century. The current revival, which stars Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane, opened last year in London, then arrived in New York this March to overwhelming acclaim. The show is long, a total of seven-and-a-half hours divided across two consecutive days, but trust us when we say it’s worth absolutely every sublime second.
