Editorial Reviews

Jack Helbig
Even if Tony Kushner had not penned the prizewinning, epic gay fantasia, "Angels in America", this earlier work would guarantee him a place in the pantheon of noteworthy living playwrights. Set in the dying days of Weimar Germany among a group of left-wing activists who slowly realize they are losing to the Nazis, the play is, like "Angels", a genre-defying mixture of literate comedy, serious drama, and political-philosophical meditation. Again as in "Angels", Kushner's remarkable eye for telling personal quirks and his ear for believable dialogue guarantee that every character, even the most minor, comes off as a fully realized, living, breathing entity. Further, the play is as compelling on the page as on the stage. It is based on the rather immature notion that the rise of Reagan and company parallels the rise of the Nazis, but happily, Kushner the artist outstrips Kushner the heavy-handed polemicist; the play easily transcends such simpleminded political thinking.
