New York, NY – The box office (250 West 52nd Street) officially opens today, Friday, January 19, 2018, for the highly anticipated National Theatre Production of Tony Kushner’s epic and seminal masterwork, Angels in America: A Fantasia on National Themes, producers Tim Levy (Director, NT America) and (President, ) announced today. This strictly limited, 18- week engagement, now in rehearsals, will begin performances on Friday, February 23, 2018, with an official opening on Sunday, March 25, 2018.

Directed by two-time Tony Award® winner Marianne Elliott, Angels in America stars two- time Tony Award winner Nathan Lane and Academy Award® and Tony Award nominee Andrew Garfield, and will also feature Susan Brown, Denise Gough, Amanda Lawrence, James McArdle, Lee Pace, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, , Rowan Ian Seamus Magee, Matty Oaks, Jane Pfitsch, Ron Todorowski, Silvia Vrskova, Lucy York, Patrick Andrews, Glynis Bell, Amy Blackman, Curt James, Mark Nelson, Genesis Oliver, and Lee Aaron Rosen.

Returning to Broadway for time since its now-legendary original production opened in 1993, this spectacular new staging of Part One of Angels in America, Millennium Approaches, and of Part Two, Perestroika, directed by Marianne Elliott, had its world premiere earlier this year in a sold-out run at the National Theatre, where it became the fastest selling show in the organization’s history.

A quarter-century after stunning the theater world, one of the greatest theatrical journeys of our time returns to Broadway in an acclaimed new production from the National Theatre. As politically incendiary as any play in the American canon, Angels in America also manages to be, at turns, hilariously irreverent and heartbreakingly humane. It is also astonishingly relevant, speaking every bit as urgently to our anxious times as it did when it first premiered. Tackling Reaganism, McCarthyism, immigration, religion, climate change, and AIDS against the backdrop of in the mid-1980’s, no contemporary drama has succeeded so indisputably with so ambitious a scope.

"The production confirms its place in the pantheon of dramas that stretch toward the heavens. In the case of ‘Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes,’ the sky is not the limit, and no work of theater since has quite matched its reach." -Ben Brantley,
