One of America’s most celebrated dramatists, Tony Kushner has never hesitated to take on the world – or history. He chronicled our last plague in Angels in America, for which he won the Pulitzer Prize; captured the moral dilemmas in the screenplay for Munich; limned the complicated dance between a Jewish family and their African-American maid in Caroline, or Change; and pulled the curtain back on our 16th president for Spielberg’s Lincoln.
Join Kushner in conversation about his life as a literary legend, the breadth of his work, his commitment to Jewish ethics, his tangles with some in the Jewish community about Israel and how familiar his Angel might find today’s America.
