In rehearsal: Angels In America

First Published 27 March 2017, Last Updated 29 March 2017

A landmark play, gifted a sensationally starry cast in its 25th anniversary production: these first Angels In America rehearsal images are sure to whet the appetite of every London theatregoer.

A multi-award-winning two-part play, Angels In America stars Andrew Garfield, Denise Gough, Nathan Lane, James McArdle, Russell Tovey and more.

The production will be directed by Olivier and Tony award-winner Marianne Elliott (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, War Horse, Husbands & Sons) and designed by Ian MacNeil, with costume by Nicky Gillibrand, lighting by Paule Constable, choreography by Robby Graham, music by Adrian Sutton, sound by Ian Dickinson, puppetry co-designer and director Finn Caldwell, with puppetry co-designer Nick Barnes, illusions by Chris Fisher and aerial direction by Gwen Hales.

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. Millennium Approaches, the first of the two plays which form Angels In America, received its British premiere directed by Declan Donnellan’s at the NT’s Cottesloe Theatre in 1992, and was joined by Perestroika in a double-bill the following year. 2017 marks the 25th anniversary of the shows.

Although sold out, audiences can still see the show through the Angels Ballot or National Theatre Live; Part One: Millennium Approaches will be broadcast live to UK and international cinemas on 20 July. Part Two: Perestroika will be broadcast live to cinemas on 27 July. For more information, visit the Angels In America show page.
