In collaboration with The Wilma Theater’s production of Angels in America, The National Museum of American Jewish History presents an exclusive screening of Wrestling with Angels: Playwright Tony Kushner (USA, 2006, 98 minutes), a documentary feature film about Pulitzer and Tony® Award-winning playwright Tony Kushner. Wrestling with Angels shows the evolution of an artist: how Kushner, raised in the Deep South in Lake Charles, Louisiana, became an outspoken activist, compassionate spokesperson for outsiders, and one of today’s most entertaining and important playwrights. At its core, the film explores the mystery of creativity and its source, through Kushner’s compelling plays that are set against the moral and political concerns of our times; directed by Academy Award winner Freida Lee Mock. Following the screening will be a discussion and audience Q&A. Tickets are $8.
Please note this program will be held at the National Museum of American Jewish History, Corner of 5th and Market Streets.
