Angels in America

In Previews. Opens Mar 25, 2018


Tony Kushner's seminal epic, Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes, returns to Broadway for the first time since its now-legendary original production opened in 1993. This new staging of part one of Angels in America, Millennium Approaches, and of part two, Perestroika, had its world premiere in a sold-out run at the National Theatre, where it became the fastest-selling show in the organization's history.

Starring multi-Tony Award winner Nathan Lane and Academy Award and Tony nominee Andrew Garfield, the cast of Angels in America features fellow original National Theatre cast members Susan Brown, Denise Gough, Amanda Lawrence, James McArdle, and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett. Multi-Tony winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse) directs.

As politically incendiary as any play in the American canon, Angels in America also manages to be hilariously irreverent and heartbreakingly humane. It is also astonishingly relevant, speaking every bit as urgently to our anxious times as it did to the early '90s. Tackling Reaganism, McCarthyism, immigration, religion, climate change, and AIDS against the backdrop of New York City in the mid-1980s, no contemporary drama has succeeded so indisputably with so ambitious a scope. Angels in America won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, seven Tony Awards, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and the Evening Standard Award for Best New Play.
