Angels in America - a fantasia on how to get tickets for a sold-out show.

Tickets for Angels in America sold out very quickly- a mark of the excitement for this 25th anniversary production of Tony Kushner's epic, but the folks at the National have come up with three ways that you can still catch the show and this bunch of jobbing actors (pictured by Helen Maybanks) have kindly re-enacted the experience of trying to get tickets for the show...

Sorry guys, but all the tickets for Angels in America have sold out 
What do you mean its sold out. I'm Nathan bloody Lane

Listen darling, less of the language - we're at the National doncha know

I'm just so upset, look at me tying on this tie when I've got a jumper on 
Oh woe is me, I'm so sad that all the tickets for Angels in America have sold out

Oh poor Academy Award-nominated Andrew, what are you going to do? Maybe Marianne can help us someway...


Don't panic boys, there are still 3 ways you can see the show. Denise has got one of them

Yeah I do. You can enter The Angels Ballot and Ballot One is now open. Russell's got the second one
Or you can Day Seat. On the day of performance, a number of £15/£18 seats will be available to purchase in person at the ground floor box office from 9.30am, limited to two tickets per customer. Day Seats for two-show days are £30/£33 and are available as a combined ticket to attend both Part One and Part Two that day.

Best to get there early though, I will fight you to be at the front of that queue. And here's Amanda with #3

Listen carefully, I will say this only once. Pop your jumper on and crouch down with me

Angels in America will be broadcast by NT Live to cinemas around the UK and internationally in July.

Oh my, you've saved the day. Maybe I will get to see the show after all

Sheesh I thought we'd get company comps
...and nobody even noticed that your hair had changed colour? Classic. Let's go join the ballot



So to recap - although sold out, there are still three ways to see Angels in America which starts previewing on Tuesday 11th April:
