The revival of Tony Kushner’s epic two-part play about life under the Aids crisis in 1980s New York will open in April this year, and is one of the hottest tickets of the 2017 theatre calendar.
Angels in America cast includes Hollywood star Andrew Garfield, stage and screen favourite Russell Tovey, and Olivier award winner Denise Gough, whose performance in Duncan Macmillan’s People Places and Things was compared to Mark Rylance’s in Jerusaleum.
The production will be directed by Marianne Elliott, most well-known for directing War Horse and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
Garfield, who plays Prior Walter, said that the play “feels so very urgent at this moment, for all our souls,” whilst James McArdle, playing Louis Ironson, described it as “one of the greatest plays of the 20th century”.
Angels in America runs at the National Theatre from April 11. It will also be broadcast as an NT Live screening.
Andrew Garfield shared his thoughts on his eagerness to shed ‘Spider-Man’ tights for ‘Hacksaw Ridge’ and ‘Silence’ for The Wrap magazine. Make sure to check the article and the pictures in our gallery
(I’m sorry again for the lack of updates, end of the year sucks).
“I have a pretty tremendous ego, and I struggle with it all the time,” Andrew Garfield said. “I think I wanted that [ego] to be destroyed, or pulverized at least. To surrender to the world as it is and not the world as I feel it should be.”
If pulverization and submission were what he wanted, that’s certainly what he got in Martin Scorsese’s “Silence” and Mel Gibson’s “Hacksaw Ridge.” Coming at the end of a period in which the earnest 33-year-old actor briefly and uncomfortably donned a Spider-Man outfit, the two intense dramas share core themes of faith, service and men grappling with their respective callings — and they both put Garfield through the wringer, physically and emotionally.
In the former, Garfield plays a Portuguese Jesuit priest on a mission to rescue his mentor and spread the gospel in 17th-century Japan — a time and place when the regime tortured clergymen into apostasy, or a complete rejection of their Catholic faith. In the latter, Garfield takes on real-life hero Desmond Doss, the only conscientious objector to be awarded the Medal of Honor, which he received for his heroic duty as a medic in World War II.
The parts are as big as they come (Garfield is in virtually every shot of the nearly three-hour “Silence”), and they grapple with the heaviest of existential woes. They also came to the actor as he waited patiently to swing out of his bubblegum gig playing Spider-Man, which he did in two big-budget films that came out in 2010 and 2014.

In director Ramin Bahrani’s bracing new drama 99 Homes, Andrew Garfield plays a young, struggling father who goes to work for the ruthless man (Michael Shannon) who has just evicted him and his family from their home. We recently got on the phone with Garfield, who was on the other side of the world filming his next movie, to talk about his new film, and his next two big projects. Garfield gave thoughtful answers throughout our chat, seeming humble but excited as he embarks on the post-Spider-Man phase of his career. He told us about the “kismet” of getting the 99 Homes script and mulled over how a group of Hollywood folks can tell a blue-collar story without being “patronizing.” He also talked about the adventure of shooting a film in Taiwan with the one and only Martin Scorsese, which he described as “pure bliss.”
Vanity Fair: Thanks for taking some time to chat. I understand you’re all the way in Australia.
Andrew Garfield: Yeah, I’m just kind of waking up. But yeah, very happy to be so far away from my life for a minute. It’s nice to, I don’t know, to feel a little removed while working.

Earlier today I’ve fixed the career section and replaced all broken links and images with working ones, added some media (trailers, clips) to films where they are available and added some more quotes.
Furthermore I’ve added new project pages for 99 Homes in anticipation of the trailer release in two days, Mumbo Jumbo, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and Silence.
I’ll slowly be adding the rest of Andrew’s projects to the career section and expand the other pages with more content so be sure to keep checking back!
