Angel is a young drag queen and street percussionist. He meets and falls in love with Collins. He has HIV/AIDS and dies of the disease in Act II. As a person, Angel is the most generous and selfless character in the show. Angel hands out money to the neighbourhood while dressed in Santa drag. Though he has HIV/AIDS, he embraces life and lives it to its fullest. People are naturally drawn to him, and his smile lights up the room. His death is mourned by all of the characters and eventually inspires them to live each day to the fullest. Tom and Angel’s relationship is the heart of the show, as the genuine love and devotion they have for one another brings hope and inspiration to the entire group. They show the world how to truly live life and not be afraid.
The actor playing this role must be an excellent actor, singer and mover. He must be comfortable with same sex physical intimacy and a drag queen persona, including dancing in heels. Percussion skills desired but not required.
