A 25th-anniversary revival that confirms its place in the pantheon of dramas that stretch toward the heavens. In the case of Angels in America the sky is not the limit, and no work of theatre since has quite matched its reach... The heroes of Angels are human. This still-singular play fans their anger, confusion and hopefulness into a flame of genuine divinity. --New York Times

A true theatrical epic? Kushner's writing dazzles. Its sheer imaginative reach can be exhilarating and it's studded with devilish humour. Instead of appearing dated, it seems pointedly topical in its scrutiny of intolerance, immigration, religious values and national ideals --Evening Standard

Epic in every conceivable sense of the word? though valuable as an evocative history play, Kushner's work is still a powerful call to arms. The challenges of progress, immigration and integration, prejudice, global warming, and religious and national identity are still urgent topics, here often brilliantly and waspishly articulated... a monumental achievement. --Broadway World

Both a document of the Aids crisis and an enduringly relevant commentary on US politics... what really hits one is the expansiveness of Kushner's imagination and the rich opportunities he creates for actors. --Guardian

Big on ideas, ambition and scope... it liberatingly plays with form: conventional scenes of domestic realism defiantly throw off those shackles with abandon to enter hallucinatory realms of fantasy, mystery and mysticism... where once it might have been stating radical positions, Angels in America now plays like a raw, truthful documentary of where we've come from, and serves as a necessary reminder of those bleak times before AIDS became a treatable disease. --The Stage

One of the greatest achievements in American theatre during the twentieth century. --British Theatre Guide

Sometimes, just when you need it most, a play courses into your system like a transfusion of new blood. You feel freshly awakened to the infinite possibilities not only of theater but also of the teeming world beyond. And when you hit the streets afterward, every one of your senses is singing.... Flat out fabulous... enthralling... "Angels" blazes with a passion that is the opposite of morbid. Its subject - not to put too fine a point on it - is life itself, and its defiant, forward-moving persistence through plagues and persecution, failing bodies and broken hearts. --New York Times on the 2017 National Theatre production on Broadway
