Interview + Photos of the Cast of Broadway's 'Angels in America'


  • Angels in America, the epic, two-part play written by Tony Kushner in response to the Reagan administration's handling of the AIDS crisis, has returned to Broadway.

  • This production transferred from a sold-out run on the West End, and stars Andrew Garfield, Lee Pace, James McArdle, Denise Gough, and Nathan Lane.

  • The cast discusses how they are enjoying performing the play in New York, because the audience is more attuned to the humor and knows the play better overall.

  • Andrew Garfield finds a sense of purpose in his role, which he thinks is rare as a performer: "It feels like we’re on a march every night for seven-and-a-half hours. So even though it’s very costly for us and for an audience, I think it’s one of those things that’s very worthwhile to do because I think if we weren’t doing this we would be struggling to find something that was as meaningful to do as performers."

  • James McArdle on transferring from the West End: "We had to bring it here because we’d been asked to, and who were we as a British company to say, “No, you’re not having your play back.” We wanted to bring it here because it belongs here, now, at this time."

  • Lee Pace, on joining the cast for the New York run: "...one of the great things about theater is we’ll be doing this for a bunch more months and I hope to keep discovering things about the play and this world on the last night that we’re performing it. I think that’s one of the opportunities of theater."
