I thought the production was pretty great. There were some theatrical decisions I didn't agree with but I thought they were brave choices. I think this "review" is a little irresponsible with some of the information it is trying to pass as facts.
Yes, CMU did the first part of Angels in America, "Millennium Approaches" and has no plans to produce "Perestroika" but this is not uncommon. Many theater companies only do "Millennium Approaches" and not "Perestroika," and Kushner even says that they can be done as standalone plays.
As far as things that were cut, I don't really know what you are referring to. Have you read Angels In America? The only thing I noticed being cut was Scene 10, which isn't a pivotal scene, and surely doesn't add up to the 40 or minutes you say have been trashed.
Please inform me otherwise if I'm wrong.
