National Theatre adds ‘Angels in America’ to At Home streaming service

Both parts of the award-winning drama join Antigone (with Christopher Eccleston and Jodie Whittaker) and Behind the Beautiful Forevers (starring Meera Syal) on the platform from today.

Andrew Garfield, Susan Brown and Russell Tovey are amongst the cast in the 2017 production of Tony Kushner’s play, with direction from War Horse and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time‘s Marianne Elliott.

The show, which had sold-out runs in the Lyttelton and on Broadway, follows New Yorkers in the mid-80s at the time of the AIDS crisis. It received the award for Best Revival at both the Oliviers and Tony Awards in 2018.

The National Theatre’s director, Rufus Norris, said: “It’s a true honour to be able to bring Marianne Elliott’s remarkable, compelling production of Tony Kushner’s masterpiece to audiences around the world through National Theatre at Home.

“In a continued period of isolation for so many people and while we’re unable to open our theatres, we hope National Theatre at Home can bring people together to collectively enjoy theatre from home.”

Angels in America Parts One and Two will come with audio description for blind and visually impaired audiences worldwide later this month and – like all other productions on the platform – will be available with captions for deaf and hard of hearing people.

Rentals of individual titles are priced between £5.99 and £8.99, while monthly and yearly subscriptions to National Theatre at Home cost £9.99 and £99.99 respectively.
