Roy Cohn died of AIDS in 1986. It has been more than thirty years since his death, but his protégé now sits in the Oval Office. We live in Roy Cohn’s America, an America of political ruthlessness, of fabricated media spectacle, of power without meaning. This piece is about Cohn and the world he has left us, but it is also a reckoning with the queer utopian vision of Tony Kushner’s Angels in America. “Roy Loves America” is a TDM senior thesis directed by Thomas Peterson and created collaboratively with an ensemble of nine performers who tell the story through found and invented text, dance, music, media, and the joy of playing on stage.
