"The intelligence and wit in the show, a thinking person’s comedy, is overwhelming." - The New york Times

 

From Award Winning Playwright Tony Kushner, best known for the two-part epic Angels in America comes Tiny Kushner, five short plays which still display the playwright's trademark theatricality and wit.   Two former first ladies, a trip to the moon, dozens of tax-evading New York cops, and variations on Hitler, Dostoyevsky, Nixon, George W. Bush, and Shakespeare populate these theatrical gemstones.  Proving, perhaps, that the playwright may be incapable of thinking small, even in works of brevity.  The broad reach of characters and subject matter, as well as Kushner's eclectic, wicked wit contribute to the charm and excitement of Tiny Kushner.  The plays include:

 

  • Flip Flop Fly!
  • Terminating or Sonnet LXXV or “Lass Meine Schmerzen Nicht Verloren Sein” or Ambivalence
  • East Coast Ode to Howard Jarvis: a little teleplay in tiny monologues
  • Dr. Arnold A. Hutschnecker in Paradise
  • Only We Who Guard the Mystery Shall Be Unhappy
