    Glorious. A monumental, subversive, altogether remarkable masterworkDetails of specific catastrophes may have changed since this Reagan-era AIDS epic won the Pulitzer and the Tony, but the real cosmic and human obsessionspower, religion, sex, responsibility, the future of the worldare as perilous, yet as falling-down funny, as ever.” Linda Winer,Newsday

    Some playwrights want to change the world. Some want to revolutionize theater. Tony Kushner is that rarity of rarities: a writer who has the promise to do both.” -New York Times
