Angels in America: Millenium Approaches (2017)

National Theatre Live is an awesome concept, where you get to see a live recording from London of world class plays with leading actors in the comfort of a cinema seat. I was lucky to catch two screenings of stellar casts tackling enormous issues.

Angels of America – Millenium Approaches : Set in the 80s in Reagan’s America, the cast deals with the AIDS catastrophe and the reality of its beginnings. Andrew Garfield, James McArdle, Nathan Lane, Russel Tovey deserve mention for the spectrum of emotions they put on display. Their harsh circumstances, hallucinations and escapades make for intense viewing. Looking forward to part 2 next week.

3.5/5
