Angels in America

National Theatre

As noted by Broadway, “[Angels in America’s] spectacular new staging, 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 New York City in the mid-1980’s, no contemporary drama has succeeded so indisputably with so ambitious a scope.”

In 2018, ‘Angels in America’ received ‘Best Revival of a Play’ at the esteemed Olivier Awards.

For this groundbreaking, eight-hour performance, ‘Angels in America’ showcased many breathtaking moments of theatrical virtuosity with the help of TAIT products:

“This production [Angels in America] is, in a word, extraordinary. It is difficult to see where else a production of this scale, intelligence and depth could be produced other than the National Theatre. The staging of the play makes full use of the NT’s production and technical expertise – there is not a department on the piece that is not performing at the top of their game, and the effects they achieve on stage are magical, astonishing and wonderful.”
