You might think that after penning the masterpiece play Angels in America and scripts for Steven Spielberg for Munich and Lincoln, the Pulitzer-, Tony- and Emmy-winning Tony Kushner would take some time to sit back and enjoy his laurels.
But Kushner’s restless intellect never seems to take a break. So, his opus has kept expanding, with A Bright Room Called Day, with adaptations of Bertolt Brecht, a screenplay version of August Wilson’s Fences and dozens of other film and stage projects.
Now, as two of those projects – the hit revival of his musical Caroline, or Change at Roundabout Theatre Company and the long-awaited opening of Spielberg’s film version of West Side Story, which he adapted – electrify the Fall 2021 season. So it’s with pride that The Temple Emanu-El Streicker Center welcomes Tony Kushner to talk about his work, old and new, and about the journey of a Jewish boy from Lake Charles, Louisiana, to the pinnacles of Broadway and Hollywood.
Moderated by SiriusXM’s Jessica Shaw.
