Writing from the Sundance Festival, David Ansen (Newsweek) praises Kushner's
"humor, ambition, vision and dazzling braininess" and David Courier
(Sundance Festival) writes "one of our greatest living playwrights, Pulitzer
and Tony Award winner Tony Kushner (Angels in America, Caroline, or Change,
Munich)) is a consummate artist and indomitable political activist committed
to equality and social justice."
Tony Kushner takes us from his childhood home in small-town Louisiana to
his development as a writer, politically active gay man, and endlessly
quotable globe-trotting force for a more literate and compassionate
universe. Featuring Meryl Streep, Marcia Gay Harden, Tonya Pinkins, Maurice
Sendak, George C. Wolfe, Oskar Eustis, Frank Rich and others.
"Entertaining, intimate...(Kushner) has a gift for being very funny and
serious at the same time." - Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Absolutely spectacular...an amazing film!" - Nan Noakar, Park City Record
"Watching Marcia Gay Harden as Laura Bush in a scene from one of Kushner1s
plays is worth the price of admission itself. Hearing Meryl Streep read a
prayer that Kushner wrote asking - no demanding - God to cure AIDS will tear
your heart out." - David Courier, Sundance Festival
"Energetic and engrossing!" - Eric Grode, The New York Sun
"Blisteringly hilarious! Moving...an exquisite work!" - Paul Fischer, Dark
"Kushner is so charming that it would be easy to overlook (that) his plays
are about things that matter. With his brains, passion and optimism, he1s
quite a package." - Jay Carr AMNY
See you at the NUART this weekend!
