Andrew Garfield Gushes About His 'Transformational' Broadway Play 'Angels in America'!

Andrew Garfield gushed all about the 25th anniversary Broadway return of Angles in America while making an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Thursday (February 8) in New York City.

“On stage it’s transformational, it changes the actors and it changes the audience. It feels like you go through this big transformation all together. It’s a big play,” the 34-year-old actor told Jimmy.

“It’s like bingeing a Netflix series live with Nathan Lane for crying out loud, playing Roy Cohn – one of Donald Trump‘s mentors,” Andrew continued. “I hope never to work as hard as this ever again in my life. I don’t think it could get harder. Simultaneously it could never get any more rewarding because the story itself is so hard to sum up.”

“It’s about an imagined future,” Andrew described. “He’s trying to help us imagine a better future of community and of needing each other. Where values like empathy, love, compassion and an awake-ness to the fact that if I hurt you, I’m hurting myself and If I love you, I’m loving myself. You’re the other me. All the old, natrual impulses that we have as human beings that are being very threatened right now with all the threats of democracy. It’s about democracy, it’s about equality, race, spirituality, sexuality, living without shame as you are, and about loving each other and needing each other to hold each other up. Come and get inspired and be transformed by this incredible play.”
