Set in the bitter height of a Reagan administration and the AIDS crisis, Angels in America is Kushner’s theatrical epic gay fantasia on political crisis’, closeted Mormon Republican lawyers, abandonment and AZT breaks set to grip the London stage later next month.
The all star cast includes the likes of Russell Tovey, Denise Gough, Andrew Garfield, Amanda Lawrence, Nathan Lane and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett. Questioning morality in conjunction to mortality and blending fantasy and realism, the show is heart-wrenchingly explicit and fringes no corners. Now, ahead of it’s return to the West End, rehearsal images of the show have emerged.
First striking an impression with London’s theatre scene back in 1992, when the double bill’s first part Millennium Approaches debuted, 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the show’s British presence and has been widely dubbed as the most anticipated play of the year. Though sold out, don’t fret, NT and Delta have provided a number of ways to still grab the show’s highly anticipated return. A number of Day Seats will be available from £15-£18 from the box office at 9:30am each day (with limits to two tickets per customer).
Still can’t get tickets? NT Live – National Theatre’s initiative to diversify and broaden their work’s audience – will broadcast to cinemas around the UK and internationally throughout the run. Part One: Millennium Approaches will be broadcast live on 20th July and Part Two: Perestroika will be broadcast on 27th July. Delta will be running Ballot One, offering theatre lovers the chance to buy hundreds of tickets at £20 throughout the whole run.
