Let’s be clear about this, Angels in America is not a play. It’s an event, the equivalent of box set binge viewing. This brilliantly acted production takes days to process and will stay with you…maybe until the next revival. Epic, extraordinary, breathtaking- and here’s another cliché- fight for a ticket!
There is a simply amazing moment when the set literally starts to crack up or, depending on how you look at it, begins to drown – just as the central character, Andrew Scott’s troubled rock supremo, Paul, finds his personal world crumbling around him, finds himself drowning in a sea of excess, selfishness and solitude.
