Mr Kushner s glorious specialty is in giving theatrical life to internal points of view in which our thoughts meld with a character s wayward speculations or fantasies He makes the personal and the universal the trivial and the cosmic come simultaneously to life in a single character s bewilderment Ben Brantley i New York Times i br br An extraordinary play a deeply felt expansively ruminative drama Paul Taylor i Independent i London br br What a feast of a play No playwright in the English language has a greater passion for language than Kushner And to this Kushner adds that rare quality in American theater a yearning to go beyond domestic stories and into the great world of political struggle Brilliant It keeps us thinking Richard Christiansen i Chicago Tribune i br br This eerily timely work about Afghanistan is comparably mesmerizing and mournful vast and intimate emotionally generous and stylistically fabulist wildly verbal politically progressive and scarily well informed Linda Winer i Newsday i br br br In i Homebody Kabul i Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Tony Kushner author of i Angels in America i has turned his penetrating gaze to the arena of global politics to create this suspenseful portrait of a dangerous collision between cultures Written before i Homebody Kabul i premiered in New York in December and has had highly successful productions in London

he was awarded a National Medal of Arts by President Barack Obama He lives in Manhattan with his husband Mark Harris br, One of the things that makes Kushner such a vibrant writer is the way he luxuriates in exuberance and sorrow emotions that these intense Berliners have in spades His intellectual characters are tremendously passionate and expressive so it s hard not to care about what they care about and what happens to them i Washington Post i br br A juggernaut of a play i San Francisco Weekly i br br Unabashedly political thought provoking a little scary and frequently a good deal of theatrical fun intoxicatingly visionary Sid Smith i Chicago Tribune i br br Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Tony Kushner s powerful portrayal of individual resolution irresolution and dissolution in the face of political catastrophe i A Bright Room Called Day i follows a group of artists and political activists struggling to preserve themselves in s Berlin as the Weimar Republic surrenders to the seduction of fascism Often exquisitely lyrical always exhilaratingly intelligent the poetic world of the play moves beyond the bounds of historical reality with the morally outraged outpourings of a contemporary New York woman Her fury at the Reagan and British presidencies brings into stark relief the discomfiting similarities between then and now and challenges us to remember that although evil may seem inevitable it is never irresistible br br b Tony Kushner b s plays include i Angels in America i i Hydriotaphia or the Death of Dr Brown i i The Illusion i adapted from the play by Pierre
