Angels and Dolls: Theater Live and Recorded at Guild Hall This Week

In East Hampton

“Angels in America: Millennium Approaches,” part one of Tony Kushner’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning play, will be presented at Guild Hall tomorrow at 7 p.m. in an encore screening of a new staging by London’s National Theatre.

Set in America in the 1980s in the midst of the AIDS crisis and the conservative Reagan administration, the play focuses on life and death, love and sex, heaven and hell. Starring Andrew Garfield, Denise Gough, Russell Tovey, and Nathan Lane as Roy Cohn, the new staging is directed by Marianne Elliott, who won a Tony Award for “War Horse.” Tickets are $18, $16 for members.

On Tuesday, the JDT Lab will present a reading of “Descent of the Dolls,” an epic poem that retells the film version of Jacqueline Susann’s 1966 “Valley of the Dolls,” at 7:30 p.m. The work is a collaboration by Jeffrey Conway, Gillian McCain, and David Trinidad, three acclaimed contemporary poets. The work’s publisher, BlazeVox, has described the poem as “Dante’s ‘Inferno’ meets ‘Valley’ in this collaborative descent into a Hollywood camp classic.”  

The program is free, but reservations are required.
