Angels in America, Rent

Angels in America
Angels in America

HBO’s miniseries Angels in America is a DVD I watch a minimum of twice a year. The cast and production dream team take on the epic play by Tony Kushner and deliver a masterpiece. The mini-series was presented in two parts as was the original play. It’s fine to watch each part separately but I prefer to plow through all six hours at once.

Rent: Filmed Live on Broadway is a DVD I’m so very thankful for. The musical Rent meant so much to me as a kid. I camped out in front of the La Jolla Playhouse for tickets when it ran here in San Diego. When the film version was released it didn’t, to me, capture what I loved about the show. But when this live version was released I was glad I could own documentation of the original Broadway staging on its closing night.

  • Angels in America (USA) 2004, HBO
  • List price: $19.97
  • Rent: Filmed Live on Broadway (USA) 2008, Sony
  • List price: $14.99
