Full description for The Theater of Tony Kushner
The Theater of Tony Kushner is a comprehensive portrait of the life and work of one of America's most important contemporary playwrights. Kushner established himself as a preeminant figure in American theatre with his towering two-play epic, Angels in America , in the early 1990's and continues to raise complicated and frightening questions about morality, politics and sexuality in his most recent play Homebody/Kabul , a prescient meditation on Afghanistan that debuted only a few months after September 11. In this sweeping chronicle of the Pulitzer prize-winning playwright, theatre scholar James Fisher examines these works alongside all of Kushner's full-length, one-act and adapted works to illuminate his progressive politics, his techniques and themes, and his place in American and international drama. This book is an essential introduction to Kushner's oeuvre for anyone with an interest in contemporary theatre, and a trove of scintillating insights and anecdotes for Kushner's many fans.
