‘Angels in America’ starring Andrew Garfield screened at Sierra Cinemas

Andrew Garfield (Silence, Hacksaw Ridge, The Amazing Spiderman) plays Prior Walter in “Angels in America,” which will be broadcasted live at Sierra Cinemas in Grass Valley.

Sierra Cinemas presents the latest offering from London's National Theatre this July and August with a unique, two-night event.

Tony Kushner's "Angels in America" will be broadcast live at Sierra Cinemas in two parts, each one week apart. This five-star production is sold out in London, and the live broadcast is the only way to see it.

Part One: Millennium Approaches shows live 7:15 p.m., Thursday, July 20, with an encore 2 p.m. Aug. 9. Part Two: Perestroika shows live Thursday, 7:15 p.m. July 27, with an encore 2 p.m. Aug. 16. The two parts are two halves of the same story, so audiences need to see both parts to fully experience this play.

The play is set in America in the mid-1980s. In the midst of the AIDS crisis and a conservative Reagan administration, New Yorkers grapple with life and death, love and sex, heaven and hell. Funny and sharply critical of American conservative politics, this epic drama resonates profoundly today.

Andrew Garfield (Silence, Hacksaw Ridge, The Amazing Spiderman) plays Prior Walter along with a cast including Denise Gough (People, Places and Things), Nathan Lane (The Producers), James McArdle (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Russell Tovey (The Pass).

This new staging of Tony Kushner's multi-award winning two-part play is directed by Olivier and Tony award winning director Marianne Elliott (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and War Horse). Part One: Millennium Approaches was first performed at the National Theatre in 1992 and was followed by Part Two: Perestroika the following year.
