Nathan Lane and Andrew Garfield, the stars of Tony Kushner's Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, hosted the event.
On Sunday, March 11 the National Theatre and the American Associates of the National Theatre hosted an exclusive fundraising gala celebrating the arrival of the National Theatre production of Angels in America on Broadway. Check out photos from the evening in the gallery below.
The festivities began at 1pm with a preshow champagne reception hosted by National Theatre artistic director Rufus Norris and playwright Tony Kushner at the Ziegfeld Ballroom. A pre-curtain champagne followed at 2:30pm at the Neil Simon Theatre before the 3pm performance of the first part of Kushner's two-part drama, Millennium Approaches. After the performance, a private gala dinner was held back at the Ziegfeld Ballroom with members of the cast, creative team, and gala cohosts.
Norris, Kushner, director Marianne Elliott, and stars Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane hosted. Sabine and Richard Chalmers, Michael Kors and Lance Le Pere, Suzie and Bruce Kovner, Stephanie and Carter McClelland, Elizabeth Offord, Jordan Roth and Richie Jackson, and Leila Maw Straus were gala cochairs.
Along with Garfield and Lane, Angels in America stars Susan Brown, Denise Gough, Amanda Lawrence, James McArdle, Lee Pace, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Beth Malone, Patrick Andrews, Glynis Bell, Amy Blackman, Curt James, Rowan Ian Seamus Magee, Mark Nelson, Matty Oaks, Genesis Oliver, Jane Pfitsch, Lee Aaron Rosen, Ron Todorowski, Silvia Vrskova, and Lucy York.
Returning to Broadway for the first time since its original 1993 production, Elliott's revival had its world premiere earlier this year in a sold-out run at the National Theatre.'
