National Theatre Live Encore presents Angels in America Double bill

Part One-Millennium Approaches 12:00pm – 3.45pm (includes intervals)

Part Two Perestroika 4.30pm – 8.50pm (includes intervals)

America in the mid-1980s. In the midst of the AIDS crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, New Yorkers grapple with life and death, love and sex, heaven and hell.

Andrew Garfield (Silence, 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(The Pass).

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). Part One: Millennium Approaches was first performed at the National Theatre in 1992 and was followed by Part Two: Perestroika the following year.

“A blistering production. The entire cast are superb.” Whats On Stage ★★★★★

“Marianne Elliott directs this courageous revival of Tony Kushner’s classic with immense rigour, underpinned by piercingly authentic performances. A true theatrical epic.”
Evening Standard ★★★★★

“The show’s a start-to-finish sensation. The performances and the plays absolutely fly.”
