The audiobook also features composer Adrian Sutton's dramatic original score.
Playwright Tony Kushner says, "I've always been a lucky playwright (kinehora kinehora pooh pooh pooh), never more so than when Marianne Elliott and her cast of monumentally brilliant and brave actors brought Angels In America to London's National Theatre and then to Broadway.
"Theater vanishes once the last performance ends, so I count it another stroke of great good fortune that Penguin Random House Audio has transformed this splendid stage production into an experience that's dramatic and also, in the audiobook's theater of human voices, novelistic in its intimacy. Listening to it has been for me a rediscovery of the plays."
"Bringing Angels in America to the audiobook format was an interesting challenge, said Dan Zitt, Senior Vice President of Content Production for Penguin Random House Audio. "Rather than documenting a live show, we recorded each actor individually after the play closed on Broadway and carefully edited all the elements and performances together, recreating the action and set design of the stage production with soundscapes and narrative to create a listening experience as immersive as sitting in the theater."
