NT Live: Angels in America

A Gay Fantasia on National Themes

America in the mid-1980s. In the midst of the AIDS crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, New Yorkers grapple with life and death, love and sex, heaven and hell. Andrew Garfield (Silence, Hacksaw Ridge) plays Prior Walter alongside a cast including Denise Gough (People, Places and Things), Nathan Lane (The Producers), James McArdle (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Russell Tovey (The Pass). This new staging of Tony Kushner’s multi-award-winning two-part play is directed by Olivier and Tony Award® winning director Marianne Elliott (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse).

Part One: Millennium Approaches was first performed at the National Theatre in 1992 and was followed by Part Two: Perestroika the following year. Part One will be captured live and broadcast to cinemas on Thursday, July 20 and Part Two will be captured lived and broadcast to cinemas on Thursday, July 27.

Few plays have captured the spirit of an age more powerfully than Angels in America…and the passage of time has not clipped Angels’ wings. Paul Taylor Independent (London)
Angels in America is the broadest, deepest, most searching American play of our time. Jack Kroll Newsweek
A vast, miraculous play... provocative, witty and deeply upsetting... a searching and radical rethinking of American political drama. Frank Rich
