Angels in America fans, put away those frequent flyer miles.
The National Theatre’s production of Tony Kushner’s groundbreaking play starring Andrew Garfield, Russell Tovey and Nathan Lane is currently playing in London. But now fans in the U.S. will be able to see the production live on the big screen in the comfort of their home city.
National Theatre Live is bringing the play to movie theaters across the country. Part 1: Millennium Approaches will screen on July 20 with Part 2: Perestroika screening July 27. The performances will be filmed live each day.
The new production is directed by Olivier and Tony winner Marianne Elliott, whose previous credits include The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse.
Angels in America has been hailed as one of the greatest plays of the the last century since its Broadway debut in 1993. It was adapted into an award-winning mini-series for HBO, and the most recent high-profile staging of the play was the 2010 Signature Theater production in New York starring Christian Borle, Zachary Quinto and Billy Porter.
Forget about Guardians of the Galaxy—this is going to be the must-see movie of the summer.
