Description

Presenting an original audiobook performance of the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, starring the cast of the National Theatre's 2018 Broadway revival.

In this production, adapted especially for the listening experience, Andrew Garfield, Nathan Lane, and the entire cast recreate their acclaimed performances from the 2018 Tony Award-winning National Theatre revival of Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes. With narration by Bobby Cannavale and Edie Falco, and a musical score by Adrian Sutton, this audiobook is a compelling and immersive theatrical listening experience.

A play in two parts, "Millennium Approaches" and "Perestroika", Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes is a complex and insightful look into identity, community, justice, and redemption.  

New Yorkers grapple with life and death, love and sex, and heaven and hell as the AIDS crisis intensifies during a time of political reaction - the Reagan Republican counterrevolution of the 1980s. 

Published to celebrate the Broadway revival, this is a unique opportunity to hear one of the most honored and timeless plays in American history. 

Full cast:

  • Andrew Garfield as Prior Walter
  • Nathan Lane as Roy M. Cohn
  • Susan Brown as Hannah Pitt 
  • Denise Gough as Harper Pitt
  • Beth Malone as The Angel
  • James McArdle as Louis Ironson
  • Lee Pace as Joseph Pitt 
  • Nathan Stewart-Jarrett as Belize

With narration by:

  • Bobby Cannavale ("Millennium Approaches") 
  • Edie Falco ("Perestroika")

Based on the National Theatre production, directed by Marianne Elliott.

Music by Adrian Sutton.

Cast of Angels

I attended this show in NYC last year. I have been walking on air ever since. joyful and uplifting. earnest and crippling. The AIDS epidemic is America's tragedy and one that killed so many, who should never be forgotten. worth the read, watch, listen, and ponder again and again.

Thank you for creating this for audio!

I saw this over 20 years ago. Wonderful to hear it again. Overwhelming emotions once again! Great cast! I wish they would do this with more plays!

Perfect Storytelling

I saw the show on Broadway in June 2018 right before it closed. This cast brings Tony Kushner’s iconic work magically, perfectly to life. When this Audi book production was announced, I immediately pre-ordered it. While it’s not the same experience as a theater production (obviously), it’s damn close. Andrew Garfield’s Prior Walter breaks my heart now just as much as during the play. Nathan Lane’s Roy Cohn is despicable and pathetic. Denise Gough’s Harper Pitt is amazingly fragile and powerful at the same time. I love this Audible production. It’s everything I hoped it would be.

Lacking something

If there is a live recording of this production I would watch it in a heartbeat. Unfortunately the recording lacks the live energy that would make it a great listen. Before you tell me it is a recording and to get over it, consider all the excellent pieces being put out by LA theatre works. It is done and it works.

Already these talented actors are up against memories of great performances in the HBO production. Taking away that live energy as well as the visuals just makes it fall flat. The narration only interrupts the stream of consciousness so essential to the flow of the play.

You can tell that these performances were something to behold onstage. But it is harder to realize in this format. It is a missed opportunity in my book. I hoped for more.

Obsessed after seeing a repertory company do this play

I’ve been researching the plays(s) ever since seeing them a couple weeks ago at Repertory Theatre of St. Louis. Even though the actors are different — and I have trouble separating Nathan Lane the comedic actor from the Roy Cohn character — I really appreciated and enjoyed this performance by the recent Broadway revival cast.

Glad to relive the experience

So happy that this has been recorded for posterity. Although I can’t compare to casts in the past as I was not there to witness them, this ensemble was what I pictured all of these years and so am glad to have this to listen to in perpetuity.

It felt like a religious experience

I cannot recommend it enough. I didn't know theatre could be this powerful. Get it immediately.

It must be heard to be believed. I have never been so happy to be wounded.

LOVED LISTENING

i saw the play 2 times, once in NYC and once in Berkeley. Enjoyed it both times. Listening to it being read helped me understand parts of the play that were confusing to me. It is well worth the time! Tony Kushner is amazing.
