Angels in America

(Provided By: Jeanette Grider)

Tony Kushner is an award-winning playwright and he’s written the screenplay for the upcoming film, “Lincoln.”  IMDB bills it as a story where “America's president struggles with continuing carnage on the battlefield and as he fights with many inside his own cabinet on the decision to emancipate the slaves.”

Kushner, however, is best known for winning a Pulitzer Prize in 1993 for Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes. Host Steve Potter talks Kushner about his career during his visit to St. Louis.
