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?!
