A gay fantasia on national themes

After a successful run at London's National Theatre, this blistering revival of Tony Kushner's two part saga detailing the early days of the AIDS crisis has announced a forthcoming Broadway engagement. Last seen in New York in off-Broadway in 2010, this new production marks the first major Great White Way revival of the play since it's memorable 1993 debut.

The cast, led by Spider-man's Andrew Garfield (Tony Award for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play, 2018) as central character Prior Walter, Nathan Lane as Roy Cohn (Tony Award for Best Performance by a Supporting Actor in a Play, 2018) and Oliver award winner Denise Gogh (soon to be seen in People, Places and Things), will also make the jump across the pond with the production, an ensemble highly praised in London for their excellent performances.

With both parts combined clocking in at an epic eight hours, this Pulitzer Prize winner meditates on many themes and intersecting stories. Layered and symbolic, it's as much an examination of the AIDS epidemic as it is a chilling look at living in Regan's America. Love, loss, grief and loneliness meld with religious metaphor and perhaps the most complex notion of all, politics.

What is it about?

At its heart Angels in America is about Prior Walter's struggle with AIDs, but it's also the tale of four other people in his life as they navigate the highs and lows of self-realization, from battling with self hate and closeted homosexuality to finding a strength you never thought you had.

As Prior's illness develops he begins to have heavenly visions where angels seek him out as a prophet. Meanwhile, his ex-lover Louis struggles with his guilt over leaving him at his most vulnerable, whilst carrying on a relationship with Joe, a closeted Mormon Republican who's own inner turmoil has made his wife Harper mad.
