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.

One of the most iconic works in American theater returns to Broadway for the first time in more than two decades. Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein's timeless musical Carousel comes to life in a new production starring Lindsay Mendez (Significant Other), Tony Award nominees Joshua Henry (Hamilton, Shuffle Along) and John Douglas Thompson (Jitney), Tony winner Jessie Mueller (Beautiful, Waitress), and Renée Fleming in her first-ever appearance in a Broadway musical. Multi-Tony winner Jack O'Brien (The Front Page, The Coast of Utopia) directs, with choreography by New York City Ballet's Justin Peck.
Set in a small New England factory town, Carousel depicts the tragic romance between a troubled carnival barker and the young woman who gives up everything for him. Elevated to an epic scale with a sweeping musical score and incandescent ballet sequences, this story of passion, loss, and redemption introduced Broadway to a new manner of musical drama — one that produced some of the American Songbook's most iconic numbers and would captivate theatergoers for generations to come.

Matata and Jesse James: An American Tragedy draws on folklore and the historical record to tell a bitter tale about America during the Reconstruction Era — a time in our country when many hoped that poor whites and poor blacks could find common ground, support one another, and build a more equitable and democratic United States.
Matata and Jesse James juxtaposes two Missouri families — that of Matata, a former African-American slave, with that of of Jesse James, known as a friend to the poor who'd fought for the Confederacy. Can these poor Americans find common ground in the Civil War's aftermath? The color line runs deep throughout this country's history and culture.
