"Couldn’t feel more vivid, more eloquently enraged, funnier, or more full of life...Elliott’s shadowy, shifting production is proof that Kushner’s play is that rarest and most thrilling of creations: a piece of theater that’s immediate and immortal...The ensemble is a muscular and immensely moving one...The brilliance of 'Angels' lies not only in its remarkably drawn characters, or its interwoven storylines, or its richness of ideas, but in Kushner’s ability to suffuse all these things with h... Full Review
"Returning to Broadway for the first time in 25 years, the plays are as bristling, dynamic and relevant as when they first appeared. If you are willing to give yourself over to its characters' desperate search for inner truth, you will be rewarded with a theatrical experience that will both devastate and exhilarate you…A testament to where we stand today: at the precipice of self-destruction and a soaring re-invention of one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." Full Review
"Now more than ever you see the grandeur of it all, and can only marvel at it...And it’s all the more astonishing because Kushner took on the AIDS epidemic not as a polemic but a saga with characters very richly drawn...Garfield is utterly absorbed into this role to the point where you almost can’t imagine anyone else playing it. He’s outrageous, serious, broad, and intense– what a roller coaster...Every other member of the cast is perfection." Full Review
"A once in a lifetime kind of production that will move you beyond anything that you've seen before, shattering your senses and tearing your heart to pieces...This current revival is as solidly majestic and complete as one could wish for...Words can barely describe its wonder...Magnificent cast...The heart-breaking and powerful 7 1/2 hours flew by, carried on the energy and excitement of the audience and the intensity of the wings of an angel." Full Review
"It's been directed by wunderkind Marianne Elliott, who also directed the other recent phenomenal British imports, War Horse and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night. And with her customarily stunning, visual effects, it continues to create a universe of its own, that tells its story with conviction and truth. What could more perfectly serve playwright Kushner's intentions, even as ambitious as those intentions are?" Full Review
"It is no exaggeration to call 'Angels' a genuine American masterpiece...Elliott's inventive physical staging proves an ideal match for Kushner's sprawling, cinematic, and magic-laden text. Elliott doesn't treat Kushner's penchant for overlapping scenes as an obstacle, but an opportunity for counterpoint...'Angels' has only grown...This is a play that reveals new secrets with each viewing, so you should never pass up a chance to see it — especially in a production this tremendous." Full Review
"A production of magnificent tenderness and sinew...Every moment is so rich, so rewarding, so engrossing that it flies by in a rush. It is hard to do justice to the multitudes that 'Angels' contains: its synthesis of the intellectual and the lyrical, the comic and the tragic, the intimate and the epic, the engaged and the transcendent. This is a play that breaks and fills your heart; it inspires you as it takes your breath away...Does 'Angels' in America still speak to us now? Yes, it does." Full Review
"It remains unblinkingly bold and politically provocative in Elliott’s astounding production...What was and is so remarkable is how the man spins words...You hang on every word, and after seven hours Kushner manages to tie each and every element into a grand fantasia that is astonishing, unimaginable perfection...The cast is exceptional—although one of the most exceptional moments might come when you realize that there are only eight actors up there." Full Review
"A magnificent thing of sound and fury...The theatrical equivalent of a teeming, furiously detailed Diego Rivera mural...Kushner weaves an extraordinary magic-realist tapestry...Marianne Elliott, who doesn't so much stage plays as create universes for them, orchestrates these political-social-spiritual, life-or-death doings with possibly even more brio than she brought to 'War Horse'...A stunning ensemble...'Angels in America' has lost nothing of its incantatory power." Full Review
"As this majestic, exquisitely designed and fiercely acted Broadway revival proves, the work is never done...It’s theater that makes you smarter, a brainy mega-drama that pierced the national discourse on AIDS, faith and progressivism, inspiring countless theater makers. Marianne Elliott’s sleek, neon-accented staging firmly binds the twisting plot strands...The acting throughout is first-rate...Go, gasp, gape – and giggle." Full Review
"This epic remains startlingly relevant and Elliott's highly theatrical and insightful new production is simultaneously massive and intimate...When the play opened critics predicted it would take its place alongside the masterworks of O’Neill, Williams, and Miller. This quirky, heartfelt revival confirms that status...Stellar company...The whole seven and a half hour experience moves like a jet-propelled dream. It's an experience you'll never forget." Full Review
"In a superlative production like this one, directed with laser-like acuity by Marianne Elliott, it's the prescience of the writing that truly astonishes — no less than the harrowing beauty, the wildly imaginative flights and the acerbic humor of the drama, or the riveting work of a magnificent ensemble...What remains amazing is how much of this sprawling yet cohesive tapestry Kushner got so right...There are design masterstrokes that take your breath away." Full Review
"Enormously entertaining...Both stagecraft and performances once again prove that rich source material fosters continuous all around excellence...Elliott and her team support rather than temper Kushner's audaciously real and surreal storytelling and interlinked array of unforgettable characters—all performed by a cast that confirms that these characters bring out the best in their interpreters...The most satisfyingly grand theatrical outing currently on any New York stage." Full Review
"Outstanding...'Angels' is both specific and monumental. Characters are sympathetic, politics so sharp, the author draws blood, religion knowledgeably manifest, bigotry excoriated. Shockingly, the playwright's arch sense of humor has us laughing through an obstacle course of tragedy. The accomplishment is masterful...Elliott helms an inspired production...Andrew Garfield should get the Tony Award. He’s astonishing. Never before has the actor shown such range and fearlessness." Full Review
"The emotional and political weave of Kushner’s writing is immaculately provocative of both head and heart...For all its ranginess, this production is a masterclass in storytelling clarity and profundity...This is seven and a half hours of luxurious dramatic immersion, and in no way arid or plodding. You will laugh a lot, which may surprise you. But this play is as streaked with humor as it is intellectual and emotional weightiness...This is theater at its most whole and embracing." Full Review
"Elliott’s riveting production is the kind of bracing total immersion in fierce, funny drama that is nutrition for both intellect and soul. This is, to my mind, much more than a nostalgic reexamination of one of the high points of late-20th-century theater...This owes to both an irrepressible inventiveness in Elliott’s staging and to the performances she elicits from eight actors of consummate range, playing the constellation of characters in 'Angels' ' interwoven plots." Full Review
"One of the countless wonders of this instant-classic production is the way it energizes, instead of enervates, as it goes along, expanding in scale and scope, spinning out one surprise after another...As directed beautifully by Marianne Elliot, 'Angels in America' is also a rip-roaring, vastly entertaining melodrama...If there's any complaint here, it's that a few of the actors don't entirely sound American. The performances are all so committed and deeply felt that any initial reservations ... Full Review
"The stunning new Broadway revival of 'Angels' is haunted by everything that’s happened since...Elliott mines the daunting structural and supernatural elements of Kushner’s play without a trace of empty spectacle...However pointed and relevant many of 'Angels’' political insights remain, the play ultimately celebrates progress in a non-partisan sense, as something that is difficult but necessary and ultimately inevitable. It’s a timeless and universal message." Full Review
"Lane and Garfield are the center of an extraordinary Broadway revival...It has never been more powerful, potent and of the moment...Its deeper themes ring even stronger now, and it lands timelessly as a play about the many kinds of love in the world, of the complications of loss and loneliness, of the power of loyalty. Kushner's writing is so extraordinary that you cling to every word." Full Review
"It’s lengthy and heady, but it's also a complete masterpiece of writing, acting, and directing, and it speaks to the current time in bold and all caps...From a director at the height of her powers to an unparalleled cast giving, across the board, emotionally raw, thrilling performances, there is nothing else like what is happening at the Neil Simon Theatre....A play that crackles and jolts you...Elliott's staging has such equality that each story is as important and as enthralling as the next." Full Review
"The play is still unrivaled, thanks to a production directed by Marianne Elliott that brings out the best in the work...But it's the cast that makes this 'Angels' soar...Whoever thought to cast Lane as Cohn should be given a MacArthur 'Genius Grant'...His Tony Award–worthy performance is matched by Garfield's own as Prior, the heart of the play...The reason companies will stage this work for decades, is that it's first and foremost great, riveting drama. And its time has come—again." Full Review
"The epic revival ignites the same emotions as the earlier versions, eliciting more humor than I remember...Much of the humor comes from the cast, many actors playing several roles. Outstanding is Nathan Lane in surely his finest performance...Equally magnetic is Andrew Garfield...'Angels of America' is exceptional and as essential today as it was in the days that inspired it. It is a stirring production that every theater-lover should see." Full Review
"While watching the intense gay themes, it is almost too easy to forget that this play is set in 1985...The writing is masterful and Lane and McArdle are more than up to the task...Under Marianne Elliott’s direction, 'Angels' is a roiling, churning entity." Full Review
"A flat-out fabulous revival...with a top-flight cast led by Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane in career-high performances...The inhabitants of 'Angels' are as glowingly individual as illuminated fingerprints. I found it impossible not to identify or even fall a little in love with all of them...The play’s second half still lacks the focus of its first part...But the characters remain so palpably there, in the writing and the performance, that attention never flags." Full Review
"Thrilling and heart-gripping...While there are some striking visuals, the focus is fully on Kushner's words and storytelling...An invigorating experience that seems to fly by...Beautiful work is done throughout by the company of eight actors, who all double as realistic characters and fantasia roles...Kushner uses the plague as means by which to address themes that are still with us today." Full Review
