Apr 22, 2013

Tony Award-winning playwright Tony Kushner comes to the University of Missouri this week as part of a conference on gays and lesbians in the theater.

Kushner's play "Angels in America" chronicles the early AIDS crisis in New York City and won both a Tony and Pulitzer Prize in 1993.

Theater professor David Crespy will interview Kushner at 5 p.m. Wednesday at the university's Rhynsberger Theatre.

The first part of Kushner's two-part play will be performed on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at the campus theater. A free reading of the play is scheduled for Sunday afternoon.
