Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes
February 23, 2018
The political themes of Tony Kushner’s 1991 Pulitzer Prize-winning epic, Angels in America, continue to ring true more than a quarter century later. The fantastical two-part drama offers a symbolic and metaphorical examination of the AIDS crisis in the mid-’80s, as characters are visited by ghosts and supernatural beings from beyond. Following a sold out run in London, this production, Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes, heads to Broadway for a limited 18-week engagement under the direction of Tony Award-winner Marianne Elliott (The Curious Incident of the Dog at Midnight, War Horse), with — as in London — Andrew Garfield as abandoned AIDS sufferer Prior Walter and Nathan Lane as closeted Republican Roy Cohn. For the U.S. run, Lee Pace joins the cast as the conflicted Mormon Joe Pitt. Tickets for Millennium Approaches (Part 1) and Perestroika (Part 2) will be sold in pairs as either same-day (matinee and evening) or multi-evening performances. angelsbroadway.com
