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.

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.
