The actors Nathan Lane and Russell Tovey reflect on the challenges and rewards of performing in Tony Kushner’s two-part ‘gay fantasia’, Angels in America, at the National Theatre. Chaired by Matt Wolf. Both parts of the play are streaming worldwide: https://www.ntathome.com/
You may recognise Nathan Lane’s voice as that of Timon in The Lion King and from The Producers and The Birdcage. In Angels in America, he plays Roy Cohn. Russell Tovey (Years and Years, Being Human) plays Joseph Pitt in the production.
America in the mid-1980s. In the midst of the AIDS crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, six New Yorkers with interconnect lives grapple with life and death, love and sex, heaven and hell.
Our multi-award-winning production of Tony Kushner’s two-part play is directed by Marianne Elliott, with a cast including Andrew Garfield, Nathan Lane, Denise Gough and Russell Tovey.
