National Theater Live: Angels in America
July 26, 2017 - July 27, 2017
Angels in America: Part Two will be captured lived and broadcast to cinemas on Thursday, July 27.
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.
