Guessing Games: What’s the Title of Tony Kushner’s New Play?

kushner.jpg Award-winning rabble-rousing liberal playwright and married gay Tony Kushner has written a new play set to premiere at the Guthrie Theater in the spring of ’09. Knowing his penchant for mouthy titles (Slavs!: Thinking About the Longstanding Problems of Virtue and Happiness, anyone?) See if you can guess what he’s called his latest work:

A) Government Apparatchiks Gilding the Apocalyptic Lily In Pursuit of the Rapture

B) The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures

C) The Liberal Messiah Reborn in a Desert of Ideas: A Transgendered Passion Play

D) The Idiot’s Guide to Fisting: A Homonormative Polemic with Songs

Answer after the jump!


If you chose B) The Intelligent Homosexual’s Guide to Capitalism and Socialism with a Key to the Scriptures you are correct. Pity those charged with fitting that verbage onto the marketing materials.

Also: why do Kushner’s plays all sound like Fall Out Boy songs? Is Tony eeemo?!
