A quarter-century after stunning the theater world, one of the greatest theatrical journeys of our time returns to Broadway in an acclaimed new production from London's National Theatre. Tony winner Nathan Lane and Andrew Garfield star in the first Broadway revival of Tony Kushner's Pulitzer-winning two-part epic Angels in America, directed by Marianne Elliott (War Horse, The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time). This production is strictly limited, playing an 18-week engagement.

SYNOPSIS: In late 1985 and early 1986, as the first wave of the AIDS epidemic in America is escalating and Ronald Reagan has been elected to a second term in the White House, the play’s two parts bring together a myriad of disparate characters whose lives intersect, intertwine, collide and are blown apart during a time of heartbreak, reaction and transformation. Ranging from earth to heaven, from the political to the intimate to the visionary and supernatural, Angels in America is an epic exploration of love, justice, identity and theology, of the difficulty, terror and necessity of change.
