The National Theatre has today confirmed that its production of Angels in America will transfer to the Neil Simon Theatre from the 23rd February 2018.
Marianne Elliott’s production of Tony Kushner’s landmark play will have a Broadway run from February 2018 and will see Nathan Lane and Andrew Garfield reprising their roles in the production.
Producers Tim Levy (Director, NT America) and Jordan Roth (President, Jujamcyn Theaters) made the announcement that the play will be playing a limited 18 week engagement on Broadway for the first time since the original production opened in 1993.
Performances will begin on the 23rd February 2018, with an official opening on the 1st March 2018. As well as Nathan Lane and Andrew Garfield, the cast will also include Susan Brown, Denise Gough, Amanda Lawrence, James McArdle, and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett – all reprising their roles from the National Theatre’s run.
In a joint statement, Rufus Norris, Director of the National Theatre, Mr. Levy, and Mr. Roth said, “With Angels in America, Tony Kushner created one of the most indelible literary works of our age. It has been twenty-five years since its original Broadway production, and it is now time for an entirely new generation to be mesmerized, stirred, and astonished by its humor, poetry, and power at a time that feels more relevant than ever. We are delighted that American audiences will have the chance to experience the astonishing performances of our original cast members and the singular dynamism of Marianne’s production.”
Angels in America’s creative team includes: Tony Award winner Ian MacNeil (Scenic Design), Tony Award nominee Nicky Gillibrand (Costume Design), Tony Award winner Paule Constable (Lighting Design), Drama Desk Award winner Adrian Sutton (Music), Tony Award nominee Ian Dickinson (Sound Design), Nick Barnes and Finn Caldwell (Puppetry Designers), Finn Caldwell (Puppetry Director and Movement), Robby Graham (Movement), and Chris Fisher (Illusions).
When Tony Kushner’s play originally premiered, it went on to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, seven Tony Awards, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and the Evening Standard Award for Best New Play.
