About the Title:
The full title of the play is Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes. The main title, Angels in America, suggests an eruption of the transcendent in the everyday. The play ends by addressing playgoers as "you fabulous creatures," suggesting homosexuals are the angels in America. A fantasia is a free-form musical work made of disparate elements; the play is a free-form exploration of American democracy from a gay perspective.
