It’s the hottest theatre ticket this summer!
Tony Kushner’s landmark 2017 revival of Angels in America has now begun its first preview performances of Part One: Millennium at the National’s Lyttelton Theatre, and the reaction from audience members has been quite something.

The show stars Andrew Garfield, Russell Tovey, Denise Gough, James McArdle, Nathan Lane. The LGBT+ play, that begins in America in the mid-1980s in the midst of the AIDS crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, follows New Yorkers as they grapple with life and death, love and sex, heaven and hell.
And those lucky enough to have tickets haven’t been shy in expressing their astonishment at the visual spectacle…
Marianne Elliott. Nothing else to say. #AngelsinAmerica is like watching Barcelona. A physical, visceral joy.

The cast of #AngelsInAmerica are phenomenal, particularly Andrew Garfield who gives a near impeccable performance. Really special theatre.
