• National Theatre Live: “Angels in America Part One: Millennium Approaches”
by Tony Kushner
Saturday, Sept. 23, 2 p.m.
Ethel M. Barber Theater
Set during the mid-1980s, in the midst of the AIDS crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, New Yorkers must grapple with life and death, love and sex, heaven and hell.
Andrew Garfield (“Silence,” “Hacksaw Ridge”) plays Prior Walter along with a cast that includes Denise Gough, Nathan Lane, James McArdle and Russell Tovey.
This new staging is directed by Olivier and Tony award-winning director Marianne Elliott (“The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time” and “War Horse”).
