The Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright will be the featured speaker at Temple Emanuel in Kingston on November 18 in conversation with award-winning playwright Rinne Groff. He will discuss some of his major writing projects, including his play “Angels in America,” which the New York Times called “the most influential American play of the last two decades.” Kushner will also discuss his screenplay for the new Steven Spielberg film Lincoln, which opens this month. The film is based on Doris Kearns Goodwin’s biography of Abraham Lincoln, starring Daniel Day-Lewis as the president. Kushner will also discuss the controversial screenplay he cowrote for Spielberg’s 2005 historical film, Munich, set after the Munich massacre during the 1972 Summer Olympics, as well as his 2003 children’s book Brundibar, an adaptation of the opera performed by the children of Theresienstadt, which was illustrated by his friend, the late Maurice Sendak. Tickets are $35 for adults, $25 for seniors and students.
