Angels in America, Tony Kushner's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, today launches a digital lottery, powered by Broadway Direct. The show begins performances of its limited 18-week Broadway engagement at the Neil Simon Theatre this Friday, February 23.

Lottery tickets will be sold for both Part 1, Millennium Approaches, and Part 2, Perestroika, together. The lottery will not be available for individual performances. The total combined price for both parts is $74, including facilities fees ($37 per part). The lottery will open two days prior to the performance of Part 1 at 10am ET and will close at 10am ET the day before the performance of Part 1. Winners will be notified by email shortly after the drawing and will have 60 minutes to pay for their tickets online with a credit card. Confirmed lottery ticket buyers will need to present photo identification at the Neil Simon box office 30 minutes before the start of the performance to pick up their tickets. Seat locations and the number of tickets awarded by the lottery are subject to availability.

Angels in America has also announced its general rush policy. At select performances, a limited number of tickets will be made available at the Neil Simon box office starting at 10am for that day's performance(s). Tickets can be purchased for $37 (including facilities fees) for single event days. On days when both parts are being performed, tickets to both parts can be purchased for a total of $74 (including facilities fees). Rush tickets will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to availability. Each ticket buyer will be limited to two tickets per event.

Directed by two-time Tony Award winner Marianne Elliott, Angels in America stars Academy Award and Tony Award nominee Andrew Garfield and two-time Tony Award winner Nathan Lane. The company also features 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.
