* ShoutOut: The play makes several references to ''Film/TheWizardOfOz''. In addition to "AndYouWereThere" (see above), Prior also says "people come and go so quickly here" after Harper vanishes in their mutual dream scene, and he, Belize, and the Angel say "If you cannot find your desire in your own backyard, you never lost it to begin with" in Act 2 of ''Perestroika''. Belize and Prior also both quote ''Film/AStreetcarNamedDesire'': in ''Millennium Approaches'', Belize says "Stella for star," while in ''Perestroika'', Prior says Blance [=DuBois=]' famous line "I have always depended on the kindness of strangers."

* LargeHam: Roy Cohn, especially Al Pacino's portrayal in the HBO version.

to:

* LargeHam: Roy Cohn, especially Al Pacino's portrayal in the HBO version. The stage script explicitly describes Cohn thusly: "Roy conducts business with great energy, impatience and sensual abandon: gesticulating, shouting, cajoling, crooning, playing the phone, receiver and hold button with virtuosity and love."

* StrawmanPolitical: Most Republicans in the play. It's not very strong, but they're almost universally shown to be selfish and concerned only with their own power. Roy Cohn, the [[spoiler:GayConservative]] stands out.
