Don’t be fooled by any notion that Tony Kushner’s revival is somehow dated or that its themes have lost their potency. “Now that the AIDS crisis has receded and gay civil rights have become standard in rich Western countries, a seven-hour play about gay life in Ronald Reagan’s America might risk looking anachronistic. But many subplots of Mr. Kushner’s kaleidoscopic work, from performative, vulnerable masculinity to conflicts within the progressive movement, are still fresh today” (The Economist, 2017). 

Spotlighting the struggles of five gay men in New York, “Angels” offers a rich, honest, and utterly resonant portrait of the fear and uncertainty gripping a changing America. Andrew Garfield (The Amazing Spider-Man, Hacksaw Ridge) plays Prior Walter along with a cast including Denise Gough (People, Places and Things), Nathan Lane (The Producers), James McArdle (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Russell Tovey (Looking, Being Human).

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).
