Tony Kushner's seminal epic, Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes, returns to Broadway for the first time since its now-legendary original production opened in 1993. This new staging of part one of Angels in America, Millennium Approaches, and of part two, Perestroika, had its world premiere in a sold-out run at the National Theatre, where it became the fastest-selling show in the organization's history.
Starring multi-Tony Award winner Nathan Lane and Academy Award and Tony nominee Andrew Garfield, the cast of Angels in America features fellow original National Theatre cast members Susan Brown, Denise Gough, Amanda Lawrence, James McArdle, and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett. Multi-Tony winner Marianne Elliott (War Horse) directs.
As politically incendiary as any play in the American canon, Angels in America also manages to be hilariously irreverent and heartbreakingly humane. It is also astonishingly relevant, speaking every bit as urgently to our anxious times as it did to the early '90s. Tackling Reaganism, McCarthyism, immigration, religion, climate change, and AIDS against the backdrop of New York City in the mid-1980s, no contemporary drama has succeeded so indisputably with so ambitious a scope. Angels in America won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, seven Tony Awards, the New York Drama Critics Circle Award, and the Evening Standard Award for Best New Play.
Note: Angels in America is a play in two parts. "Part One: Millennium Approaches" lasts three and a half hours. "Part Two: Perestroika" lasts four hours. Each part has two intermissions.
Mark Twain wrote, "There are five kinds of actresses: bad actresses, fair actresses, good actresses, great actresses. And then there is Sarah Bernhardt." In 1899, the international stage celebrity set out to tackle her most ambitious role yet: Hamlet. Theresa Rebeck's new play rollicks with high comedy and human drama, set against the lavish Shakespearean production that could make or break Bernhardt's career. Janet McTeer brings the legendary leading lady to life.
Mart Crowley's groundbreaking 1968 play, The Boys in the Band, centers on a group of gay men who gather in a New York City apartment for a friend's birthday party. After the drinks are poured and the music gets cranked up, the evening slowly exposes the fault lines beneath their friendships and the self-inflicted heartache that threatens their solidarity. A theatrical game-changer, The Boys in the Band helped spark a revolution by putting gay men's lives onstage — unapologetically and without judgment — in a world that was not willing to fully accept them. This revival, directed by multi-Tony Award winner Joe Mantello, stars Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Matt Bomer, and Andrew Rannells.
This Tony, Drama Desk, and Olivier Award-winning Best Play tells the story of an unconventional teacher at a school for the deaf and the remarkable woman he meets there.

For half a century, the Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys has been dedicated to the education of strong, ethical black men.

But can he make his way through the hallowed halls of this institution if he sings in his own key? This soaring, music-filled work is by Tarell Alvin McCraney, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Moonlight and a recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship Grant. Trip Cullman (Murder Ballad) directs.
Tony Award-nominated playwright Jez Butterworth's The Ferryman is set in rural Northern Ireland in 1981.

But this year, the festivities get interrupted by a visitor.
Academy Award winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty) directs this play by Tony Award nominee Jez Butterworth (Jerusalem). The two previously worked together on the James Bond movies Skyfall and Spectre, but this production is their first stage collaboration. So far it's borne fruit, with the play winning Evening Standard and WhatsOnStage Awards for Best Play and Best Director.
