Behind The Scenes with National Theatre’s ANGELS IN AMERICA

The National Theatre’s lavish production of Tony Kushner’s ANGELS IN AMERICA has received a plethora of 5 star reviews and was sold out many months before it opened which is not surprising considering its glittering cast led by Nathan Lane, Andrew Garfield, Russell Tovey, and Denise Gough.

The two-part play first staged in 1993, challenges gender stereotypes and modern views of homosexuality, and is considered a landmark of contemporary theatre, winning Kushner a Pulitzer Prize, Tony, and Drama Desk award, plus a HBO mini-series starring Al Pacino, Meryl Streep and Emma Thompson.

In this revealing video posted to The National’s YouTube channel, we get to see the mammoth undertaking by both cast and crew and go behind the scenes on a two-play day to discover what it takes to bring to life over seven hours of theatre.

 

 

An astonishing collaborative achievement.
