Jujamcyn Theaters is currently in discussion to bring the critically acclaimed London revival of Tony Kushner's Angels in America to Broadway next season, according to the New York Post.

The Marianne Elliott-helmed production officially opened May 4 in the National’s Lyttelton Theatre with a cast headed by Andrew Garfield, Nathan Lane, James McArdle, Russell Tovey, and Denise Gough.

Completing the cast are Stuart Angell, Susan Brown, Laura Caldow, Claire Lambert, Amanda Lawrence, Becky Namgauds, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Stan West, and Lewis Wilkins.

No Broadway venue has been announced, although Jujamcyn's Walter Kerr Theatre, which housed the Broadway debut of Angels in America in 1993, is currently available following the closing of Amélie. Jujamcyn also produced the debut production.

Kushner’s two-part epic historical drama captures the lives of the HIV-positive Prior, his lover Louis, closeted gay Mormon Joe, his Valium-addicted wife Harper, his mother from Utah Hannah, notorious lawyer Roy Cohn, and his nurse Belize. Through a period of death and tumultuous change, these characters discover, confront, and seduce each other, and are joined by the Angel, a terrifying and beautiful herald of the apocalypse.
