“Fabulous Creatures Spin Forward”: l’intersezione tra humour ebraico, camp e il Fabulous in Angels in America

The article deals with Tony Kushner’splay Angels in America, focusing on the employment of humor and camp in addressing the AIDS epidemic. The analysis moves from the influence of Jewish black humor on a new form of camp shaped during the epidemic, to the relationship between this “AIDS camp” and the concept Kushner calls the “Fabulous”. Considering not only the text, but the film as well as different stage productions, the paper investigates how the intersection of AIDS camp and the Fabulous makes of Angels in America the turning point in AIDS literature.
