Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) You'll have three chances this weekend to catch a Tony Award-winning play this weekend at Binghamton University. Jared Gordon came by to tell us more.

The following is a statement from Gordon and the Dickinson Community Players.

The play is "Angels in America: Millennium Approaches" written by Tony Kushner and directed by Tori Scalzo. It won the 1993 Pulitzer prize for Best Drama and 1993 Tony Award for Best Play.

The show dates are Dec 6 at 8 p.m., Dec 7 at 8 p.m. and Dec 8 at 2 PM

Tickets will be $3 at the door. It takes place at Binghamton University at the Chenango Champlain Collegiate Center in the Multi Purpose Room and is being done by the student run production company Dickinson Community Players.

"Angels in America" is a provocative drama that takes place in New York City in 1980's in the midst of the AIDS crisis. It tells the story of a group of people dealing with the forces of identity, religion, race, politics, family, society, and love. Through their journeys as individuals and as an ensemble they question what it means to be an American and more transcendentally, what it means to be human.
