“An­gels in Amer­ica” “Part One: Mil­len­nium Ap­proaches” pre­mieres Jan. 11 and “Part Two: Per­e­stroika” pre­mieres Jan.18, run­ning through Feb. 17 Ac­tor’s Ex­press 87 West Ma­ri­etta St. Atlanta, GA 30318­tor­sex­ com­pany’s “Fa­ther Comes Home From the Wars (Parts 1, 2 and 3)” last year. Wilkins is tack­ling the first part (“Mil­len­nium Ap­proaches”) and Ashley is di­rect­ing the se­cond (“Per­e­stroika”).

“What I’ve re­ally liked about the process so far is the chance to col­lab­o­rate di­rectly with an­other di­rec­tor,” said Ashley. “As di­rec­tors, we col­lab­o­rate with ac­tors and de­sign­ers all the time, but we never get the op­por­tu­nity to work with other di­rec­tors. And when you have two di­rec­tors who ad­mire each other’s work and re­spect each other as much as Martin and I do, then there are some very ex­cit­ing pos­si­bil­i­ties to work in a way that is com­pletely new.”

While the shows are run­ning in rep, both halves will be staged on Satur­days, “Mil­len­nium Ap­proaches” in the af­ter­noon and “Per­e­stroika” at night. Ashley is also mak­ing it a point to part­ner with var­i­ous non­profit or­ga­ni­za­tions in the area to be able to con­nect with di­verse au­di­ences.
