For someone who finds writing tortuous, Tony Kushner does a lot of it.
Award-winning playwright Tony Kushner, author of the screenplay for "Lincoln," sits down with Bill Moyers for a winding conversation about how the script was written and whether comparisons between Barack Obama and the 16th president are fair.
Award-winning playwright and gay rights activist Tony Kushner speaks with "Democracy Now!" about Obama’s decision to support same-sex marriage, the life of children’s author Maurice Sendak, and his regard for Abraham Lincoln, about whom he wrote a screenplay for an upcoming film directed by Steven Spielberg.
Tony Kushner will be receiving an honorary degree from John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York City. This shouldn't be big news.
