ANGELS IN AMERICA
Broadway: Neil Simon Theatre
Written by Tony Kushner
Directed by Marianne Elliott
Cast includes: Andrew Garfield, Nathan Lane, Susan Brown, Denise Gough, Amanda Lawrence, James McArdle, Lee Pace, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, and Beth Malone
A quarter-century after stunning the theater world, one of the greatest theatrical journeys of our time returns to Broadway in an acclaimed new production from the National Theatre. A politically incendiary play at the center of the American Canon, Angels in America also manages to be, at turns, hilariously irreverent and heartbreakingly humane. Tackling Reaganism, McCarthyism, immigration, religion, climate change, and AIDS against the backdrop of New York City in the mid-1980’s, no contemporary drama has succeeded so indisputably with so ambitious a scope.
