The National Theatre’s massively successful production of Tony Kushner’s Angels in America is heading across the pond, it has been announced.
The 1993 play has booked a limited Broadway run, with stars Nathan Lane and Andrew Garfield to reprise their roles. The two-part play received wonderful reviews when it was broadcast in cinemas both in the UK and US, and now our American friends will get a chance to see this fantastic production.
Marianne Elliott remains as director, and Susan Brown, Amanda Lawrence, James McArdle and Nathan Stewart-Jarret will feature. Additional casting is to be announced, and we can’t help but notice Russell Tovey’s absence from that list.
Rufus Norris, director of National Theatre, said in a joint statement with Tim Levy and Jordan Roth: “Producing the original UK and Broadway productions of Angels in America in London and in New York remain defining achievements in the history of the National Theatre and Jujamcyn Theaters. We couldn’t be happier that our two organizations will be working together to bring this new National Theatre production of Tony’s masterwork back to Broadway.”
