APRIL 18, 2009 — A DAY OF CELEBRATION IN MINNEAPOLIS

 

Nearly 1,000 attendees took part on the Guthrie Theater’s Kick Off to Kushner, a community wide event, which featured 70 singers from the Twin Cities Gay Men’s Chorus premiering “I Want More Life,” a new choral commission with text from Kushner’s Angles in America and music by Michael Shaieb.

 

In addition, Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak presented a proclamation declaring April 18 “Tony Kushner Day” in Minneapolis.

 

Caroline, or Change, the first of the three productions in the Kushner Celebration, continues through June 21 on the Wurtele Thrust Stage under the direction of Marcela Lorca. The world premiere of the Guthrie-commissioned play The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures opens in mid-May on the McGuire Proscenium Stage under the direction of Tony and Drama Desk nominated director Michael Greif (Broadway: Next to Normal, Rent, Grey Gardens), followed by Tiny Kushner, an evening of Kushner’s short plays directed by Berkeley Rep Artistic Director Tony Taccone, in the Dowling Studio.
